There is a quiet carpark situated just off the B795. The trails start directly from this carpark, but be careful when crossing the road.
Kennick Burn Blue Trail
This is the longer of the two trails. The blue trail follows the same route as the shorter yellow trail for some distance, yet continues further along the grassy forest road until you cross a bridge. This then transforms into a peaceful meander along the lush bank of the bubbling Kennick Burn.
Kennick Burn Yellow Trail
This pleasant short trail follows the Kennick Burn for a short distance before turning off into the mixed woodland. A grassy forest road leads the way for the yellow trail before continuing along the course of the Kennick Burn.
