The track rounds to the left and arrives at a T-junction. Turn right, and cross the Lymington River over a long bridge.

Follow the road down and left until it reaches the larger Rhinefield Rd. Carefully cross, then take the North Weirs road on your right. This loops around and brings you onto Burley Road.
