The walk takes us across wide open moorland up to Musden Head Moor, along the Rosendale Way and Holcombe Moor, past Pilgrims Cross to Peel Tower and then dropping down to Ramsbottom.
We walk on moorland paths, paths and metalled roads. Expect mud and some waterlogged areas.
Please bring a torch, as we may lose light towards the end of the walk.
