A superb way of leaving or accessing the Long Mynd area without using many roads. This trail contains a real mixture from singletrack through farm tracks, open farmland, fireroads, bridleway, BOATs and very minor tarmac road. Main routfinding difficulty is when in the wood, dropping at the right time onto fireroad. If the singletrack seems to be getting a bit too twisty and rooty perhaps you have passed the 'turn'
