Hindhope Linn

4 miles (6.6 km)

This circular walk visits the beautiful Hindhope Linn and Blakehopeburnhaugh Waterfalls in Kielder Forest.
The walk starts from the Blakehopeburnhaugh car park to the east of the falls. From here you can pick up woodland trails heading west along Forest Drive. Other tracks will lead you down to the falls on the Blakehope Burn. It's a lovely secluded spot with the rushing falls in a photogenic dell.
You can continue west to Blackblakehope before following alternative paths back to the car park.
