Enjoy fabulous views over Cheshire on this climb to Shutlingsloe Hill in the Peak District. The walk starts from the Trentabank Reservoir car park and follows a footpath through Macclesfield Forest to Shutlingsloe, passing Nessit Hill on the way. There is quite a steep path to the506m (1,660ft) summit but you will be rewarded with splendid views of the surrounding Peak District scenery. You can return on the same path or descend to Wildboarclough and return on country lanes to make it a circular walk.
Highlights on the walk include nice woodland trails through the conifer forest and views over Trentabank Reservoir with its heronry and interesting plantlife.
It's easy to extend your walking in this lovely area. You could head west from the car park to Ridegate Reservoir and pick up the Gritstone Trail and follow it to the excellent Tegg's Nose Country Park.
