This route starts at the junction of Main Street and Bogfoot Road in Salsburgh, at Grid NS 82602 62681.
Heading NNW on Bogfoot Road, the road ends, and an ash/aggregate vehicular access for the sewage works continues from here. There is an intermediate (Scotways) signpost at NS 82572 62775, stating ‘Right of way to Blackhill 2.7km ( 1 2/3 miles)’, and a few yards further on is an unlocked gate.
The route carries on over the M8 by way of a vehicle bridge, then downhill.
Just before the burn the ROW heads NW to the sewage works.
From here the path heads NNW and becomes narrower, a mix of trodden footpath and aggregate, running alongside a three strand barbed wire fence.
After a further 500m the path becomes blocked in wet weather by two flooded sections.
In dry weather these would be probably be clear of water, but in wet weather cause path users to divert slightly, depending on how much they have spread.
After 300m the path then drops down, and follows the track bed of the old railway almost to the end of the route. Around 100m from the end the path heads NNE and climbs up the side of the blocked cutting, to terminate at the signpost at NS 81983 64327.
