The route follows NCN 1 from Riverside country park along compact gravel pathways. We head towards the Strand which is mostly tarmac via the boat yard entrance.

The route leaves Riverside country parks and follows the river Medway all the way to the Strand. We then loop round and head back the way we come and then continue to re-trace the route. We then head up to the other end of the country park to a place called motley hill and then back to the start point.

Off road, 1 small section of 50metres on an industrial style road with very little traffic.

First-timers welcome!
