Reddish Vale Country Park
Outline: A walk along both sides of the River Tame between Reddish Vale Counry Park and the East side of Haughton Green in a green belt enclosed on all sides by suburbia. This unusual route passes twice underneath the Reddish Vale Viaduct that dominates the River Tame, over and under the M60 motorway, through three nature reserves and along a section of the Peak Forest Canal. It has areas of noisy asphalt that contrast with areas of quiet pretty woodland. The route has no mountains or majestic views, enjoy it as a slice through post industrial Manchester.
Difficulty: A moderately long stroll with some muddy paths.
