We cross the bridge and go E along the lane to Tunstead Clough Farm then on to open fields. We keep going E climbing steadily before the steeper climb, much of it stepped, on to Kinder Low, our highest point.
It’s now a northly direction along the moor to Kinder Downfall, which, last time I was here was in full flow, spectacular. Try not to get your feet wet when we cross the stream at the top.
We now turn westerly passing Sandy Heys before a short steep descent to the top of William Clough. Here we turn to the south making our way down the clough criss crossing the stream until we reach Kinder Reservoir. The path takes us alongside reservoir before the final stretch along the lane.
Poles will be useful if the streams are running high.
