The North Worcestershire Path begins at the Georgian town of Bewdley, also the starting point for the Worcestershire Way. Running north along the River Severn to Eymore Wood near to the Trimpley Reservoirs, the route then heads east to Kingsford Country Park and Kinver Edge near the Staffordshire Way, before continuing east towards the Clent Hills. From the Clent Hills the route goes south to the densely wooded Lickey Hills, where it winds up through Scots Pine and native woodland past a visitor's centre. From the Lickey Hills the route winds roughly northeast, finishing in Major's Green.
The route includes some stunning scenery, including Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and a satisfying mixture of terrain. It is long enough to be challenging but short enough to be achievable for a runner who has completed a marathon and wants to try a longer distance.
