28/05 – Daisy Nook to Hartshead Pike

The walk is going to start from Daisy Nook Country Park, which has free parking. We’ll head through the park and alongside the old canal path, leaving the crowds. The path then joins the River Medlock, following it through the forest, up and down the banks through Park Bridge Heritage Centre. We’ll reach a road, which to avoid the mud we’ll keep on for 15 minutes and then climb the hill to the top of Hartshead Pike for lunch. After lunch we’ll descend through the fields and traverse back across to an old railway line. Finally we’ll arrive back in Daisy Nook Country Park and return to the cars.
