A great, varied route with some fantastic views in the sunshine. Weather was glorious (perhaps a bit too glorious...) and the trails dry underfoot. A few sections with overgrown nettles and brambles but nothing impassable. I went South to North (Hazel Grove to Woodley).
I live relatively close to the trail and would like to have another go at this when the temperature is a bit cooler.
I carried a litre of water in soft flasks which was (just about) enough, and some sugary cereal bars.
Good luck to anyone else attempting this route!
