At Moira, the route joins the Conkers Circuit and is an off-road section that leads through the heart of the National Forest for 6 miles to Measham.
Why not stop off at Conkers, the award-winning attraction that is a unique mix of indoor and outdoor experiences for the whole family.
Between Measham and Leicester make sure you take a look at Thornton Reservoir, a 31-hectare site which is a haven for wildlife and offers a wide network of trails and footpaths through the woodland areas.
After leaving Oakham, the route travels around Rutland Water Nature Reserve, a bird-watching paradise which is well worth a detour.
