Head towards the back of the car park and follow the river under the A168 and A1 bridges. Go straight ahead into the field and follow the riverbank. When the fishing club carpark is reached at the far end of the field turn left and follow the lane until the junction with the Ebor way is reached. Turn left onto the Ebor way and follow this back to Wetherby, once at the side of the A1 turn left to get back to the bridges and then right to get to the car park.

Very handy from A1 J46 southbound (J45 northbound)

We walked downriver from car park - took us under A1, then to walk along a path between the river and a meadow. Only met one other couple walking this way. Hadn't read the instructions properly (as found it quickly on my phone in car) and did it as a linear walk - good to read now that could do it as a circuit in future. Picnic tables and bins near car park. Two minute well-signed walk from car park gets you into town centre for loos/coffee etc. If walk upriver (bandstand direction) it is busier - you quickly come to a beach area before a wier - lots of kids and dogs playing in the water (& and ice cream van when we were there - August). Would re-use this dog-friendly stop,
