Can somebody please give me directions for the cross valley path from Rita to Forbidden Valley? And how long does it take?

I'm not sure on the exact directions, but the walk itself takes about 10-15 minutes and is slightly challenging (lots of steps and uphill walking). It's well worth doing though.

Just follow the yellow signs and take your time and take in the gorgeous surroundings. :D

If you have a bit of time and dont mind the ups and downs, its a really nice walk, and it is all signposted from both sides of the garden so its pretty easy to get across without getting lost or anything.

It's not a nice walk. It's bloody horrible! Steps - Mud - Steps. :lol:

*In the summer on a nice hot day, its a fairly nice walk*

If its been raining recently then its a wet cold walk. :D

I really wouldn't waste your time on it unless you actually want to wander round the gardens. As a means of getting from A to B it is hopeless. You will arrive at the other side knackered and out of breath, and with all those hills it doesn't really save any time compared to going the long way round.

On the flip side, you get to see some nice gardeny thingamies. :P

Cross Valley Path

The Cross Valley path is a pussy cat compared to a treck around Hawkstone Park, and you are charged £8 for that. Not that I want to give Alton any ideas of course. :0.

Had some nice walks through the Gardens and the Valley.

Certainly better to take an hour out and having a gentle amble round rather than using it as a quick route from A to B.

Have had many a quick trek down to the bottom then back up the other side. I personally am fine with it, but it leaves many a person knackered. :)

If you think the Skyride queue is bad then the walk through the gardens isn't that bad. It leaves you tired and needing a sit down and is bad if you can't stand steps and rough ground but it is alright.

Hope this helps :)
