A spectacular waterfall, great for family picnics
Take time out to see Linhope Spout, a 60 foot (18m) chute of water, which lands in a plunge pool 6ft (2m) wide and 16ft (5m) deep. The total length of this walk is 3.21 miles. Please keep dogs on leads and follow the paths.
Red squirrels can be seen on the way up to the Spout, however if you are not lucky enough to catch a glimpse of these shy creatures look out on the forest floor for the Scots Pine cones which they have been feeding on. The domed hill you will see in the distance, to the north west, is Hedgehope Hill, which stands at 714m and is the second highest of the Northumberland hills.
This route also runs across Open Access land where the landowner has a dog restriction in place. For more information visit the Open Access website.
