Waskerley Way follows the western part of the former Stanhope and Tyne Railway. It is nearly 10 miles long and rises from 230 metres above sea level at Lydgetts Junction to the west of Consett, to 440 metres at Weather Hill Engine north of Stanhope. It passes through a range of habitats from mixed deciduous woodland and conifer plantations to open heather moorland.
The walk starts at Lydgetts Junction, which is the intersection of the Waskerley Way, Lanchester Valley Railway Path, Derwent Valley Railway Path and the Consett-Sunderland cycle paths.
