Overview

Easy flat walking and would be suitable for C + walkers to try a slightly longer distance.
From Falkirk Stadium car park (park near to the path to the toucan crossing over the A904) we enter into the Helix Park. On good paths we head west on the south side of the River Carron, then cross the north side then go east to Newton Road. Paths and tracks on the flatlands east of Skinflats, will take us Brackenlees Road, then paths and tracks to recross the River Carron and take us back into the Helix Park and return to the cars.
There may be some small muddy sections in the flatlands.
