This hike is about 19km (12 miles) with approximately 600m of ascent. Most of the ascent is gradual, with only a few short steep sections. As the weather may be wet, paths and trails may be very muddy.

This walk is part of the AGM weekend.

With just a 20 minute train journey from Manchester Piccadilly Station; join Ant and the Outdoor Lads for a hike offering great views of both the Manchester skyline and The Peak District.

The walk will start at Broadbottom Train Station, following the Tameside Trail to Hollingworth, from where we'll start our first ascent of the day up to Wild Bank Hill. Next we'll descent to Harrop Edge, where Bees Coffee Pot will give us the energy for the remainder of the walk. The second half of the walk will take us over the top of Werneth Low and back onto the Tameside Trail to Broadbottom. 

Points of interest on the route:

Werneth Low Country Park: Established in 1980, the park gives great views of both Manchester and The Peak District, depending on which side of the park we're on, in addition to some nice wooded areas. Located within the park is the Hyde war memorial, which was erected in 1921 to honour the local soldiers who died in the first world war.

Wild Bank Hill: At 399m, this will be the highest point of the walk and in Tameside. From the top we'll get views over Manchester City Centre, The Peak District, Cheshire Plains and West Pennine Moors.

Dogs are welcome, though will need to be on leads if we go through any fields with livestock. There are also several stiles they may need lifting over.

Once finished, we can go to the nearby pub.

Message the event leader if you've any questions.
