At the cabin turn right along a forest road, which leads to a single track section with a ford, before descending to Blackling hole. From here the Red route heads up to the top edge of the forest overlooking Eggleston Moor then returns to the Grove via the Euden beck. Most of this section is on forest roads. From the Grove the Forest drive takes you back to the visitor centre. This trail is graded red because it is long with a lot of hills and is mostly at a low technical grade.
