About the event


Stage 1 of the GM Ringway trail uses canal towpaths, paths, parkland and the Trans Pennine Trail to trace an almost totally traffic-free route from the city centre to the greenbelt of the Mersey Valley.This route has now been improved (in summer 2023) to avoid any diversion on match days at Old Trafford and to make it even more traffic-free. Also, despite its name, this stage takes you only to the Sale Water Park Metrolink station. Sale Water Park itself is actually explored on Stage 19 (Altrincham – Stretford), the penultimate stage of the GM Ringway.Note that parts of the trail may be damp, muddy and slippery at any time of year and especially after periods of wet weather. Please bear this in mind when going on this walk
