Outwood Trail

4 miles (7 km)

This cycling and walking trail runs along a disused railway line from Radcliffe to Prestwich. The route starts in Outwood Country Park in Radcliffe, next to the River Irwell. You then follow the surfaced path through Giant's Seat Wood and Hurst Wood passing Clifton Country Park on the way. You can continue along the traffic free path on National Cycle Route 6 through Prestwich Forest Park to Pendlebury. It's an easy, traffic free ride through pleasant woodland and parkland.
To extend your outing you could visit Clifton Country Park. The park contains a pretty lake, woodland, meadows and an arboretum.
Our circular walk around Bury visits Elton Reservoir and the Manchester, Bolton and Bury Canal near Radcliffe.
The Irwell Sculpture Trail also runs past the park so this is another good option.
