Rochdale Ramblers - Sunday Walks

26 May 2024

Sunday 26 May 2024

Two Sides of the Rossendale Valley
Meet in the car park at Marl Pits Leisure Centre
Newchurch Road


Walk distance = 7.5 miles.

National Grade: Moderate

This is a scenic walk along each side of the valley from Rawtenstall to Cowpe.  We set off from Marl Pits sports centre with a short road walk before we ascend to Whinberry Naze then make our way along the hill top to Cowpe.  We then descent into Waterfoot for some more road walking before a steep climb back out of the valley to enjoy fabulous views (hopefully!) while walking along the hillside before descending and making our way back to Marl Pits.

Please note, that due to the popularity of these walks, car sharing whenever possible would reduce parking congestion.

Advise: Walking Boots, Waterproofs if needed, adequate clothing, snack and drink.

Generally dogs are not permitted, with exception of Registered Assistance Dogs, but anyone wishing to bring a dog should contact the Walk Leader in advance to obtain His/Her consent or otherwise.

They welcome new and potential members to join their walks.
