Usway Burn - River Coquet - Upper Coquetdale Walk

14 miles (22 km)

Enjoy some lovely waterside walking along the Usway Burn and the River Coquet on this route in the Upper Coquetdale area of the Northumberland National Park. The walk begins next to the parking area at Alwinton and follows a footpath to the Usway Burn. You follow the path north along the burn with waterfalls, woodland paths and wonderful views of the Cheviots. Just after entering the edge of Kidland Forest you turn south and head towards Barrowburn.
Here you pick up a country lane which runs along the River Coquet through the beautiful Upper Coquetdale. This lane takes you to the finish point back at Alwinton.
