The Cheshire sector of the Peak District National Park is often seen as uninteresting and this route goes some way to dispel this myth. The route does have a couple of lengthy steep ascents towards the end but effort is rewarded with excellent and varied landscapes. Conditions underfoot can be very wet after heavy rain so appropriate footwear is essential.
