Tankersley and Thorncliffe Woods; 6 miles, quite steep in places but no sustained hills

Ford and Charnock Hall; 6 miles fairly level, some very boggy bits

Route details and map,

Wentworth and Keppels Column; 6.5 miles hilly, some boggy bits
Cross the valley twice, so fairly hilly but should get great views.
If there has been heavy rain, the return path changes from a broken concrete track to a racing flood up to 12 inches deep!
Route details,

Dale Dike Reservoir; 5.7 miles fairly level apart from one steep, grassy hill. Probably some boggy bits!
The path shown follows the reservoir edge. If yo go too far up the road and try to cut down again, watch out for the path heading downhill to the ladder stile - do not go up the steep hill!
Route details,

Dam Flask; 4.4 miles with a couple of small hills or the option to just walk beside the reservoir. Probably some boggy bits!
Route details,

Glen Howe Park and More Hall; 4.5 or 6 miles, but lots of climbing. Mainly tracks and roads.
Route details,
A three mile version is available on the Stone to Steel site, or download here.
