The trail is for the most part a pleasant ride with good views. After approximately 3km you reach the former Hartington Station, where there is a car park, picnic site, a former signal box and some interesting information boards.
You can come off the trail here and when you come out of the lane leading to the station, turn left down the B5054, which swoops down to Hartington village, making a very pleasant ride where you hardly have to pedal at all. (Don't worry, you will pay for this!)
Continue along this minor road before descending into Long Dale to meet the road which winds its way along the foot of the dale. Follow this uphill, past Vincent House Farm, then turn right at the next junction to return to Parsley Hey.
