    Waskerley Way is a 9.7 mile (15.6 km) traffic-free cycle path. Running through County Durham's finest countryside, it passes impressive railway structures, patchwork farmland, woodland, wetland, scrub and moorland. The route runs from Stanhope to Lydgetts Junction. As the route is very popular with cyclists, hikers and horse riders, it may be quite crowded, especially in summer. Look out for slow worms and butterflies along the way!
