The walk crosses a small tributary valley at Radland and then follows the valley of the main river to the confluence at Radland Mill. The route then follows paths through Timber Wood and Nanie Rowe's Wood to reach Boar's Bridge and continues through the woods to reach the quay and lime kilns at Bohetherick. The walk then crosses the river via Cotehele Bridge and passes the mill and weir in Cotehele Wood before returning to Boar's Bridge. The final stretch is via a mediaeval holloway and footpath through the fields.
