This route is linear, you walk back the way you came, however, if you were to take an OS map you can make it circular or look up the public transport.
Many ask why Sycamore Gap (as well as Rapishaw Gap, possibly the first you encountered and Milking Gap) are… gaps! These ‘nicks’ in the Whin Sill are meltwater channels, naturally carved by vast amounts of meltwater flowing beneath the ice sheets that once covered this area. This is a beautiful walk and by starting at Housesteads you can look around the old roman fort to understand a bit about the history of hadrians wall before you begin.
