Valley Floor Walks
OS map required: OL 16 Explorer
These all start at the carpark just south of Hethpool. From here you have a number of options.
Walk up the Valley along the road to Southernknowe. Easy walking with access to the river at Southernknowe.
St Cuthberts Way, Hethpool Lake and Hethpool Linn. Shady forest paths, picnic by the waterfall and explore around the lake. A little further afield you can walk down to Kirknewton or up onto Yeavering Bell.
Two Valleys. Walk south towards Whitehall but turn right along the forest path signposted for Trowupburn and then follow the Esldonburn valley back to Hethpool.
