A last few twists and turns before the Kelpies.

Another 'End of Cycle Route' followed immediately by the continuation of the same cycle route. Slow for and give way to anyone with keys to the gate.

The HArTT cycle path runs alongside the River Carron, and under this old railway bridge.

The asphalt surface has ended as the HArTT cycle path nears the River Carron.

The HArTT path gets narrower, and starts twisting and turning.

Signs in Bainsford. I can't think why Carron and Stenhousemuir are only for pedestrians, or why they didn't name the hospital. Imagine walking three and a quarter miles and it turns out to be the wrong one! The single-sided HArTT cycle r ... [more]

Pedestrian signage on the HArTT cycle path at Bainsford, although not actually at a junction.

Signage for the HArTT cycle route, in its usual tiny writing.

The shared-use path from the canal to the Falkirk Wheel North Car Park and continuing onwards to the Park'n'Ride car park at the A803/A883 roundabout.

No dropped kerb at the start of the path on Garbett Place. No signage either, even though this is part of the HArTT cycle route.

The path from Camelon at Sunnyside Playing Fields. The path to Bainsford and Carronside is visible beyond the rugby pitch.

The path between Sunnyside Street and Sunnyside Playing Fields is a Right of Way.

The path from Sunnyside Playing Fields arrives at Sunnyside Street, although it is a bit hidden from view from the road by the buildings.

No dropped kerb on the path from Carmuirs Park football ground car park to Mansionhouse Road. Mansionhouse Road could be developed as a cycle link between the canal and Camelon.

Someone must have decided this layout was a good idea!

The path towards Slamannan Road and Falkirk High station, with lighting columns placed so they do not obstruct the path.

Tiny route signage for the HArTT cycle route. Easy to miss at a turn.

Barriers at Lionthorn Road crossing.

Once the path gets going, it is fine, until the next road crossing.

A kerb and barriers across the start of the newly rebuilt path to Falkirk High station. There is a dropped kerb but it's off to the left (see #103465).

The end of Hallglen Terrace and the start of the path through to the Glenburn Road underpass. See also #103233.

The end of the Hallglen cycle path at Hallglen Primary School.

The Hallglen cycle path goes around a bus shelter in New Hallglen Road.

The Hallglen cycle path crosses the spinal path.

The start of around 300 metres of cycle path to Hallglen Primary School from Nevis Place. It crosses the spinal path which doesn't appear to be regarded as a path for cycling.

The underpass beneath New Hallglen Road on the spinal path through Hallglen could do with some TLC.

The spinal path through Hallglen.

The spinal path through Hallglen.

The path between the southeastern and southwestern parts of Hallglen. See also #103463.

The step-free path through the southeastern part of Hallglen, the opposite end from #103227.

The step-free path across the southeastern part of Hallglen. Although many of the connections seem to have steps. See also #103228.

One of the few step-free connections to the main path through the southeastern part of Hallglen, linking to Glenburn Road.

The path from the Westquarter Glen meets up with New Hallglen Road. The nearest sign for the HArTT cycle route is at #102843.

The path alongside the Westquarter Burn suddenly gets rather steep for the climb back up to New Hallglen Road. More like a mountain biking route than a local cycle network route!

A new bridge over the Westquarter Burn for access to a new housing development. Imagine if that sort of money had been spent on the path!

A new bridge for access to a new housing development, crossing the Westquarter Burn and path.

The path alongside the Westquarter Burn.

End of the asphalt as the path heads towards the Westquarter Burn.

A sign for the HArTT cycle route pointing towards Spinkhill (see #103160), but as the old railway bridge was removed (see #103161), a hair-pin bend path has been built up to New Hallglen Road to use its bridge instead. No indications whethe ... [more]

Steps down into the Westquarter Glen. Maybe next time I'm in the area I'll explore the other options the HArTT cycle route could have taken.

More steps on the path through the Westquarter Glen.

Steps on the path through the Westquarter Glen. Not what you'd expect on a signed cycle route.

A waterfall on the Westquarter Burn. A nice path for a walk, but there's a surprise for cyclists following the signed HArTT cycle route just around the next bend.

The path up the Westquarter Glen.

The path up the Westquarter Glen.

From the bridge across the Westquarter Burn (see #103078), the HArTT cycle route is signed along the lower path along the west bank.

The HArTT cycle route crosses the Westquarter Burn.

The HArTT cycle route turning into the Westquarter Glen proper.

The local path crossing the path to the Westquarter Glen and HArTT cycle route is built to a better standard than the main path.

A sudden change in path surface quality, and it gets worse further on. See also #103074.

The destination sign points to the HArTT cycle route's destinations of Callendar Park and the Falkirk Wheel as being up the path to Ash Grove but the HArTT cycle route badge points right along the path to the Westquarter Glen. See also #103 ... [more]

Really not the end of the cycle route, which continues across the road crossing. If there were special regulations like on a motorway an 'end of cycle path regulations' sign would be appropriate, but it isn't like that.

With all these 'End of Cycle Route' signs, it is difficult to tell where the HArTT route continues!

A decent quality bridge across the Westquarter Burn, and the path up to Polmont Road, both part of the HArTT cycle route.

A good quality of path surface, but it needs a good sweep!

The path into Callendar Woods diverges from the path to Callendar Boulevard.

Why have a straight path alongside the car park?

The cycle lane marking at the end of Callendar Boulevard encourages cycling on the wrong side of the road, just like #101199 at the other end of the road.

The end of Callendar Boulevard and the start of the path to Old Redding Road.

A small park in Laurieston, with the path to the Helix park diverging to the left.

The path linking Laurieston to the Helix park, at the top of the hill down to the A9 crossing at #102863.

The HArTT cycle route turns right here, across Icehouse Brae, near the roundabout with the A9. What I didn't notice at the time was the shared-use sign on the grass verge to the right, before the roundabout.

Helix signage at Laurieston Road, but shows the HArTT cycle route turning right instead of left!

They don't make 'em like they used to!

A single bollard in an already narrow path, approached in all directions by paths. Is this really necessary? No directions on the signpost for the route to the right, which also happens to be the HArTT cycle route.

Helix signage at the junction for the M9 motorway underpass through to Grangemouth. The HArTT cycle route turns left here, and there is a tiny badge to that effect, but nothing for the opposite direction (seen at #102938).

'End of Cycle Route'? The HArTT cycle route turns left here, and there is a link to Grangemouth through the underpass on the right. See #102937 for a close-up of the directions sign.

The path under the M9 motorway connecting the Helix park to Grangemouth. From here, the signed route to the Jupiter Wildlife Centre is for pedestrians only. A signed cycle route to the centre of Grangemouth could be organised at minimal exp ... [more]

A path connecting Chisholm Place to Portal Road, without even basic crossing facilities like dropped kerbs where it crosses Newlands Road.

A path connecting Portal Road to Chisholm Place, although there are no dropped kerbs (nor any other crossing facilities) where it crosses Newlands Road. The whole length of Portal Road (which runs parallel to the A905 Beancross Road) is rid ... [more]

A single-sided sign for the routes available across the Grange Burn, but a low kerb rather than a proper dropped kerb at the end of the path. I wouldn't want to bump the bike over this when it is loaded with shopping!

A footbridge across the Grange Burn Flood Relief Channel, linking the Grange Burn path to Rannoch Park. The A905 and M9 motorway lie beyond.

The path alongside the Grange Burn, a bridge across the Grange Burn, and a sign for a completely cycleable walking route to Grangemouth Stadium.

Signs on the path network near the Grange Burn. The sign for Grangemouth Stadium is for pedestrians only, unlike the next one, shown in #102918.

Looking across NCN76 at the path junction near Torwood Avenue.

The paths clearly existed before NCN76 came along, and the alignments and widths were not altered.

A shared-use path starts on the left, to avoid the junction ahead, although NCN76 appears not to use it and instead turns at the junction, then turns again onto the next section of the same path. The dropped kerb is also far from flush, ... [more]

The John Muir Way leaving a car park at the Kinneil end of the Bo'ness waterfront section.

The John Muir Way in Bo'ness has been resurfaced with smooth asphalt, and solar LED catseyes for lighting. However, the level crossing kissing gates remain.

The John Muir Way in Bo'ness has been resurfaced with smooth asphalt, and solar LED catseyes for lighting.

The John Muir Way path on the waterfront at Bo'ness has been resurfaced in smooth asphalt with solar LED catseyes for lighting.

The path into the Kinneil Estate starts off narrow and twisty, but later widens out into more of a track.

A path to Rannoch Park at the end of the Inchyra Road shared-use footway.

Mumrills Road is now a well surfaced path between Sandy Loan and the A9 underpass at Beancross.

A short length of path near the Forth & Clyde Canal. If only it went further.

The path on the other side of the Forth & Clyde Canal from the main towpath. I assume the 'Cyclists Dismount' sign up ahead means that cycling is allowed along this path.

The path on the other side of the Forth & Clyde Canal. The main towpath is across the water.

The Westburn Avenue shared-use footway passes a caged pedestrian crossing.

The view the opposite way to #101520, and the end of an unspecified cycle route. The HArTT cycle route comes through here too, but is without a sign.

A newly resurfaced path to Camelon at the Sunnyside playing fields. Plenty of gradients.

Various signs but no mention of the HArTT cycle route which comes through here and along the path to Bainsford according to the council's map. See also #101522.

A path leading to an uncontrolled crossing of the A9 (see #101519) and the Sunnyside playing fields. Although the HArTT cycle route goes past either end of this path, it uses a signalled crossing of the A9 further to the north.

Signs for motorists are bigger.

Signage in the Helix park, including a badge for the HArTT cycle route.

More arrivals from the direction of a car park.

Barriers across an exit from the Helix park.

Signage in the Helix park, including a badge on the post for the HArTT cycle route.

Signage in the Helix park.

The Helix park - "A place to cycle" - but I didn't see many more adult bikes besides these two. An out of town park that most people drive to.

Barriers at the entrance to the main part of the Helix park. The other side of the toucan crossing has bollards.
