From the carpark you have a chance to warm up for 10 minutes whilst climbing towards the 1st reservoir. This is followed by a 1 mile climb to the moors.


Great in all weather, never gets too muddy.

Hazards and warnings

As with all natural trails, there's water gulleys and some 1ft drop offs which can be avoided but some skill is involved.

Detailed description

If you cycle around the Manchester area, I will be adding more routes over the next few weeks. This ride is only a couple of hours if you're reasonably fit. This actual ride can be extended another couple of hours if you carry on towards Greenfield which I will add shortly. Skill level is anything from 3 to 5 depending on wether you want to attempt any of the obstacles, again which I'm in the process of adding some photos.
