For those interested in visiting Muker you can take the trails down through some lovely hay meadows into the village centre. (approximately 10 min walk away).
If you do decide to visit Muker, you can either retrace your steps back out through the hay meadows (recommended) or for those that don't like doubling back, you can take a less scenic route by following Gurring Lane a country road (be vigilant of oncoming traffic) that rejoins the trail again just before Ivelet. See attached image of our suggested route.
