Mary Townley Loop is well known in the north! Starting at Waterfoot there are steep climbs to begin with but the views make up for it! The trail is well maintained and clearly marked. There are smaller and easier route available on the loop but to do it all is a challenge!

Get off the M6 at J29 onto M65, Off at J8 then through Accrington on the A56 to Rawtenstall, then follow the A681 to Waterfoot.
Take plenty of water and energy bars
