Path to the River Leven
Followed in this direction, the path leads from Overburn Avenue to the River Leven, with Broadmeadow Industrial Estate to the left (south) and the course of Dumbarton Golf Club to the right.

See NS3976 : Path to Overburn Avenue and NS3976 : Path to Overburn Avenue for views in the opposite direction.
Lion's Gate to Dumbarton Rock
This description covers a subset of West Dumbartonshire's core paths (4953 inclusive and 157) that, when taken together, make up a continuous path (49 + 50 + 52 + 53) along or near the eastern bank of the River Leven ( LinkExternal link ), beginning at the Lion's Gate at Kilmalid, and ending at Dumbarton Rock(*). Two shorter paths (51 and 157) branch off from the riverside path. Others paths branch off from it near the SUDS pond at Lomondgate ( LinkExternal link ); these are also included here, although they are not core paths.

(*) Note that, as of mid-2018, core path 53 stops at the east end of Riverside Lane, but it is intended that it eventually be extended to become a riverside walkway to Dumbarton Rock.

See LinkExternal link (PDF, 1.3MB, at the West Dunbartonshire Council website) for a visual index to all of these paths. Summary descriptions (where "BMIE" = Broadmeadow Industrial Estate and "CP" = Core Path):

CP 49 (741m): Beside the Murroch Burn; from the Lion's Gate to the Blue Bridge.
CP 50 (1019m): Heads south (beside a golf course) from the Blue Bridge to NW corner of BMIE.
