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.
