14/07 – Shutlingsloe Forest Loop

Shutlingsloe, the ‘Matterhorn of Cheshire’. We’ll be following one of the recommended Macclesfield Forest walks, which is roughly a distance of 4.3 miles. Firstly we’ll exit the main car park through the picnic area and start heading up the hill. The forest track start to flatten out and we’ll take a right out of the forest, across a field to the summit of Shutlingsloe. We’ll return to the forest and find a nice tree trunk for lunch. We can then decide if we go over or around the hill before taking a left on the forest track. We’ll then weave through the forest alongside the road back to the car park.
