Track simplification

This is a relatively short route. It takes you from the car park at brushes quary around the moor itself and up to the masts at the top, then its a fun downhill back to the car park. 

The first half mile is heavy going until the path split as the climb is fairly steep for the not so fit, the next half mile is pretty easy going and most of our riders manage this. Then its downhill all the way to the car park.

Maybe not so interesting snippet of information, in the early to late 1980's before the moor access was blocked the local Lada Main agent used to bring customers up here to demonstrate the off road capability of the Lada Niva 4x4 by starting at the top and driving down the moor to our start point. Sometimes they would turn round and drive back up again. I have seen Land Rovers stuck up here in the 80's and early 90's but never a Lada Niva (the one car they did make properly)

In the summer the views are spectacular from here of cheshire and Lancashire
