As the title suggests this route is ideal for the evenings or when you are short on time. It is also a great introduction to fell running because as well as providing some fab views it also is not too remote or hard to access. You can either park at The Fox House Pub, or the Upper Burbage Bridge car park depended on which is more convenient.
Essentially the route runs over the top of Burbage, Carl Mark Fort and Higger Tor. Overall the terrain is rocky and uneven but really enjoyable, watch out for a few boggy patches lower down around Carl Mark Fort. My favourite section has to be the descent back to Fox House from Upper Burbage Bridge car park – once you know where you are going it is easy to fly down!
