We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

After leaving Newcastle Central Station and heading towards the High Level Bridge, you descend to the Quayside down many steps, which are quite steep and could be slippery when wet. As the route continues through Jesmond Dene, it was very muddy on the day I covered it, to the point where I was concerned about losing my footing on the soft mud at times. My shoes got extremely dirty, even though it hadn't rained all that much in the previous few days. After emerging from Jesmond Dene, the route takes you along several unremarkable suburban streets.

Not my favourite walking or running route. I certainly wouldn't do it again or particularly recommend it.
