2 dogs allowed

Starting along a track our route quickly takes us into woods and up to the highpoint of the day. After descending through the far side of the woods we make our way through fields and along country lanes to join the Longster Trail where we can appreciate great views towards the Mersey. After passing through a mix of ploughed fields and paddocks with horses grazing, we reach the edges of Manley. From there we pick up the Sandstone Trail and gradually make our way back to the start.

RAcross fields and along country lanes, tracks and paths. A walk with little ascent after the first hill. Although the terrain was with little mud on the recce gaiters are advised.
