It may not especially feel like it but your journey through Forge Valley is a geological voyage, which can only be explained by looking back 10,000 years into the distant past. During the last Ice Age a large lake formed in the Hackness Valley, just to the north of Forge Valley. In time the lake overflowed, and flowing water cut the steep-sided valley in a relatively short time.

The route follows a fairly level, wooden boardwalk for its entire length. There are plenty of passing places, which double up as viewing platforms. There are numerous seats along the way.
