    Route Description for Blythe River Walk

    If you are looking for an easy-going trail that can serve as a natural getaway, then the Blythe River Walk is the perfect option for you. In addition to meandering through a peaceful riverside setting, you will have the chance to spot a number of wildlife species that live within the woodland landscape, making for a fun afternoon on the trails.

    Setting out from the trailhead, you will immediately enter into the dense cover of the forest and head to the south, where you will cross over Pegwhistle Burn and arrive at the banks of the River Blythe. Here, you will; follow the banks of the river to the southwest, taking your time as you enjoy the tranquil atmosphere of the forest and the sound of running water nearby.

    After making your way through a few bends along the river’s edge, you will continue straight to the southwest, where you will eventually come to the terminus of the route near the A1. From here, you will simply turn back and retrace your steps along the same trail, re-living the natural beauty of the forest on the return to the trailhead where you began your walk.
