Route Guide

The route starts at the Roman Lakes Leisure Park just outside Marple where there is free parking. However, the road that leads up to the park is very rough and full of potholes so you may want to consider parking in the town centre instead.

To start the ride you take a left out of the park and onto the bridleway. This trail follows the River Goyt and is quite picturesque with the sound of flowing water creating a pleasant ambience.

Follow this trail for about 1.4 miles before turning right onto station road. Continue on the road passing a pond on your right, then over a bridge until you reach a main road. 

After about ½ mile keep an eye out for a bridleway on your right. Follow the bridleway around Disley Paper Mill until you reach a minor road. Take a left here and then a right onto Redhouse Lane.
