Public Transport based walk suitable for new walkers, with Katherine Hamlett & Stu Edwards.
Walk Leaders meeting at walk start.
A leisurely autumnal circular only a stone's throw from Manchester; this 8 miler packs in woodland, waterways and even Werneth! With a gentle start through the golf course and along the lovely river Etherow, we pass through the country park and gradually climb through trees and farmland. Our ascent is rewarded with far-reaching views of both the Peak District and the Manchester skyline. Following lunch at the top, we work our way down through easy lanes and footpaths back to your choice of Platform One - for the train or the pub!
