Hi All!

I have the pleasure to say that the Manchester walking group turns three years this July!
It is summer the long daylight and the apparently good weather invite go for a moderate-intense hike.
We will start in Greenfield Station and we head to the outstanding Dove Stone Reservoir through beautiful woodland.
From there we climb up to Chew Reservoir where the path follows the edge of the emerging cliff-line.
The track has magnificent views and finally, the descent back to Dove Stone Reservoir is moderately challenging.

Everybody who walks with Manchester Walking and Hiking Group does so at their own risk. Outdoor activities have risks and can be challenging. Ratings are provided as a general guide only. Is required good physical conditions and wear appropriate equipment is a must.
I may change the tracks according to weather conditions either other circumstances in order to keep the group safe.
