From Higher Cunliffe farm the path sets off Easterly, dropping down the hillside as it goes.
The path crosses the field and heads into the former Cunliffe quarry.
This was once home to the "Blue Lagoon", as it was known locally. Local people often came here during the summer to swim in the beautiful quarry waters, hence the name, that was, until someone died while swimming. The former quarry site has now been filled in, and is used more for motorbike scrambling.
Leaving the spoil heap behind, and continuing in an easterly direction towards the next spoil pile, the path offers beautiful sites of the canal and surrounding area.
The path goes on across the field to the next spoil heap.
Following this track until you are right next to the heap, the track then turns right to go immediately down the hill, following the field side.
This section of track is part of the former quarry trail, and is laid with rough stone that horse and cart would have once travelled over when the quarry was operational.
Once at the farm, footpath 9 runs across the path, and passing down the side of Lower Cunliffe farm, the path joins the farm track.
The track crosses the former railway line to Great Harwood, before heading to the canal.
From the canal it travels up to Cutt Lane, and Cutt Wood Park, before ending or starting at Blackburn Road.
