After you drop of the road you have to navigate the first of the swamps to reach the trail. Once on the trail proper it's easy enough to follow as it wynds through the trees. One thing to watch out for is the short sharp remnants of the lower branches. These havent been cut back properly so if you come off and hit one, you could do yourself some serious damage.
As you progress down the trail you will hit a few more swamps and a couple of rudimentary bridges. It's worth examining the bridges as they aren't particularly well built and there is no form of grip material been added.

This trail is unsanctioned, use at your own risk!

       The second bridge has been removed, it is just before going back into the trees after crossing the flat marsh. Nothing in its place so just a 3ft gap and drop into the burn.
