If you find yourself in Northumberland and are looking for a walking route that will be sure to get your heartrate up and leave your legs feeling weak by the end, then the Cheviots and Hedgehope Hill Walk is the perfect trail for you.

Setting out from the car park, you will make your way initially to the southwest along the road for a short distance, before turning left onto a footpath. Following the trail to the southeast, you will cross over the banks of Harthope Burn and begrin traversing the barren landscape of the moor.
