2 miles (3.2 km)

This walk visits the pretty Redisher Wood in Ramsbottom. The woods are a lovely place for a stroll, with sheltered trails along the Holcombe Brook to enjoy.
The trails will lead you north west to Simon's Lodge, a picturesque lake which looks particularly lovely surrounded by autumnal trees. Along the way you'll also pass a waterfall that flows impressively after heavy rain. The woods are also a nature reserve so keep your eyes peeled for a variety of woodland birds.
To continue your walking in the area pick up the circular Ramsbottom Walk and enjoy river paths along the Irwell Sculpture Trail before a climb to the splendid viepwoint at Peel Tower.
