  • Hickling Broad – This National Nature Reserve is situated in the upper stretches of the River Thurne, and is the largest expanse of open water in the Broads.
  • Rivers Thurne and Bure – Enjoy a long waterside stretch along these two rivers just after passing Hickling Broad
  • Breydon Water – The final section runs along the River Yare and the delightful Breydon Water into Great Yarmouth. It is a nature reserve run by the RSPB and includes the Roman fort at Burgh Castle.

The walk is waymarked with a green and white disc.
