Starts at the car park, enters Lee Quarry to the East, and gradually takes you on a tour through many of the most fun parts of the quarry. It gradually heads west until leaving Lee Quarry and heading into Cragg Quarry. There are no mandatory black trails on this route althogh there are some areas that have the option of black or red, leading to the same place. This area is characterised by its short but fun flowy trails, with some steep parts, lots of big berms and very little climbing (once you've done the initial climb to get there). Cragg Quarry is for the most part a single long flowy and flat trail.

If the route is followed exctly you'll see at one point in Lee Quarry you are directed slightly off your path a few meters to a dead end, and then told to turn around and re-join the path, however, once you're here you'll see 3 different trail beginnings next to each other, these are great fun, really small and really easy to find your way back up to the top, great for sessioning, I recommend you try these out.
