A very wet ramble that was made easier further up the slopes due to a previous heather fire. I drove across a ford and parked a little further up the forest track. I then walked along what was essentially a stream (pretending to be a path) for a while before mushing my way through a soggy bog to emerge on a track at a forest edge. Please read the map carefully and don't follow this part of the route! (It's doable but only for the very experienced, very determined or very odd). Once on the good track at the forest edge it's an ordinary walk on the track before leaving it for the extended plod over the bog to Milk hill. A return foray to Bleantosaur doesn't reveal any prehistoric giant Bleantosaurs, but does reveal a very curious 12 foot high stone cairn and the remains of a rusted milk churn. Perhaps that 12 foot high cairn is the droppings of a Bleantosaur? A nightmarish 10 minute mulch through a river pretending to be a forest spat me out near my car where I suddenly realized that the endless rain may have made the ford impassable. I made it through but keep it in mind if you are experienced/determined/odd enough to use this ridiculous starting/finishing point.

Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, an approximate though often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 1h 36m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
