Highlights of GM Ringway Stage 10

  • A grassy ridge walk along the well-named Windy Hills, offering aerial views of Britain’s highest motorway 
  • The dramatic rocks of Blackstone Edge, called the “Andes of England” by Daniel Defoe 
  • A descent of the “Roman Road”, actually a medieval packhorse trail 
  • A gentle finish via the tree-lined Ealees Valley and the shores of Hollingworth Lake, Greater Manchester’s largest body of water.  

Paths are generally good, though sections are likely to be muddy or boggy depending on the season. 

Please bring walking boots, waterproofs, food & drinks.
