From Low Bradfield the walk climbs through fields to High Bradfield. The route passes the Norman church and Bailey hill, goes through woodland before it cross more open land.

The route follows the old Dukes Road onto the moors to Back Tor, then drops down the old Foulstone Road before returning to Low Bradfield going by the side of Dale Dike Reservoir.
