From Shirebrook station the route travels along a sealed surface traffic-free path, before joining a stone track towards Warsop Vale. From here the route uses a shared use, traffic-free path alongside the B6031 to the edge of Church Warsop, before joining a stone traffic-free track leading to the edge of Warsop Carrs park.
The route crosses the peaceful River Meden close to the Meden School, across the A60 and onto Burns Lane. A right hand turn from Burns Lane onto the quiet traffic-free Broomhill Lane begins the final section of the route. Look out for the left hand turn onto a stone track that follows the edge of fields and into Sherwood Forest. After a short distance of forest track, Route 648 meets Route 6 and a choice of options for onward travel.
From this junction, further traffic-free exploring can be done by either turning south to stay in Sherwood Forest and Sherwood Pines Forest, or north onwards to Clumber Park. Details of cycling routes and nearby attractions can be obtained from the Nottinghamshire visitor centre.
The Robin Hood line is operated by East Midlands Railway between Nottingham and Worksop and provides easy access to the route by public transport.
