Description

(D/A) From the front door of The Sportsmann Inn, turn left. Follow Kinder Road for 500 yards to Bowden Bridge car park.

(1) Continue along the road ahead for a further half-mile to the sheepwash. Go through the gates ahead of you and continue along the reservoir road (if the gates are locked, use the footpath on the opposite side of the river, then turn left over a footbridge to reach the reservoir entrance).

(2) Take the stone-pitched footpath to the left of the reservoir gates. At the top of the hill, just before an information panel marking the reservoir’s centenary, turn left (signposted “BRIDLEWAY”).

Follow the path alongside the wall to a gate at the top. Bear left then right across the open moor to a junction of paths below the shooting cabin.

(3) Turn left (signposted “Hayfield 11⁄2 miles”). Follow the obvious path through the heather to a National Trust sign for the Snake Path. Go through the kissing gate and follow the track across rough grazing land.

After a stretch alongside a wall, go through a gate and cross the field (South - West), aiming for the treetops of Twenty Trees. Follow the wall and then go through a kissing gate on your right, above the clump of trees.

(4) Bear left past the trees to a further kissing gate and commemorative sign. Descend along the bottom of the next field to a gate and stile. Follow the track beyond, which bends left to join a concrete drive and leads down to the Kinder Road.

(5) Turn left and follow the road for quarter of a mile back to The Sportsmann Inn. (D/A)
