Herd path turnoff
only a few hundred metres beyond the Ward Brook Leanto, one encounters the cairn (see picture, left of Markus) that marks the start of the 'herd path' leading to the top of Seymour. It is quite well-defined, and in fact you can see here that it is more defined than the old road, which is completely grassy with no footpath tread beyond this point. Might be harder to spot this in winter, though. Another clue is that the turnoff is immediately beyond a small brook.
