Start at the north end of Shank Bridge on the A7 road. On the east side of the road - at the end of the metal barrier - enter a path 1m wide and go uphill through 2 kissing gates, after 200m join a broad shale road. Turn right for 100m, then left, then after a further 300m the shale road narrows into a path which twists for 100m, until it widens again into a 3m wide shale road, passes through a gate and after a further 200m finishes on the B704 road, opposite Gorebridge Parish Church.
This is a much used route with a reasonable surface.
