A very pleasant walk at any time of the year, but particularly good in spring when the bluebells are out. This walk is a little steep up towards Clock House Woods. There are lovely views all along the route, beautiful woodlands and a small Lake as you enter the grounds of Hare Hill. Hare Hill has a colorful display of Rhododendrons in Spring and the walled gardens are well worth a visit. Hare Hill is a National Trust Property.

The Cheshire sector of the Peak District National Park is often seen as uninteresting and this route goes some way to dispel this myth. The route does have a couple of lengthy steep ascents towards the end but effort is rewarded with excellent and varied landscapes. Conditions underfoot can be very wet after heavy rain so appropriate footwear is essential.
