Marker 1.) Start at the car park at Low Mills in Farndale, map ref. SE672952. Take the pedestrian gate from the car park opposite the public toilets and follow the path down to the River Dove. Cross the footbridge over the river and follow the 'daffodil walk' upstream for about 2km to a small group of buildings that includes the 'Daffy Cafe' on the right at map ref. SE668970.

Marker 2.) Just beyond the 'Daffy Cafe' at map ref. SE668970, turn off the road to cross a stile and follow the public footpath across the fields, across the river and up the valley side to a road along the western side of the valley. At the road turn right and follow the road to Monket House at map ref. SE660972. Opposite Monket House turn left off the road to climb up the steep hillside on a rough track for about 2km to a crossroads at map ref.SE640974 on Rudland Rigg.
