An easy access route from Reeth to the River Swale.
Starting on the village green, take the flagged alleyway between the Black Bull and Kings Arms public houses. After 40m the alleyway turns into a tarmacked lane leading to Langhorne Drive. Turn left onto Langthorne Drive and then right at the end following the signpost to the Swing Bridge. From here the route is unsurfaced with some gradients reaching 1:6.
Whilst walking along the river, look out and listen for heron and dipper on the river as well as nuthatch, tree creeper and great spotted woodpecker in the trees along the river bank.
