This trail is a 3-stage 85.6 kilometer moderately trafficked point-to-point trail that is not that difficult to complete. The trail offers a number of activity options. Horses and mountain bikes are also able to use this trail.

Starting at Ae Forest in the hamlet of Ae, the trail follows old Roman roads, forest tracks, drove roads and short sections of quiet lane through the heart of notorious reivers country, providing enjoyable walking, cycling and riding through the Southern Uplands. It is mainly through sheltered woodland and forestry, with some sections through more open farmland.
