These pretty woods in Salford have some nice footpaths to try. There's shady trails, streams, a lake, sculptures and a wild flower trail to enjoy.
You can start the walk from the car park off Greenleach Lane at the northern end of the woods. From here you can pick up the trails heading south along the Kempnough Brook to the Old Warke Dam. Then follow paths along the lake to the Worsley Canal Basin before picking up other footpaths to take you back to the car park.
The Bridgewater Canal runs past the southern and western end of the woods so you can easily pick up the towpath to extend your walk. Heading west will take you toward Astley while heading south will take you toward Patricroft and Trafford Park.
Just to the north east you will find Clifton Country Park abd Prestwich Forest Park where there are more good walking and cycling trails to try.
