Cow Green Geological Trail
12 km circular route
Cow Green Geological Trail Approximately 4 kilometres each way, this linear trail uses well-marked footpaths and minor roads.
A longer (12 km) circular route can be made by continuing past Widdy Bank Farm to the Cow Green road.
Allow a full day for the complete walk. At stop 7 there is a steep, scrambly descent. If you do not want to negotiate this then turn around at the top of Cauldron Snout and return to the car park.
(The route is wheel/pushchair accessible to this point) - This makes a gentle alternative walk of about 5km.
Stout boots, warm clothing and good waterproofs are advised, as even in summer the weather of Upper Teesdale can be harsh.
