The Gritstone Trail North – Disley to Tegg’s Nose

The Gritstone Trail is a 55km trail that crosses Cheshire’s Peak District from Disley in the north to Kidsgrove and Staffordshire in the south. It’s split into three manageable sections, the first of which starts from the railway station at Disley and ends at Tegg’s Nose country park.

The Gritstone Trail offers true upland walking, mostly over 300 metres – a surprise for those who thought the Cheshire Plain was the county’s only landscape feature! These are wide open spaces, shaped by the wind and the weather – with distant views over stone walls, lonely farm houses and sheltered woodlands.
