Discover Hollingworth Lake and Littleborough with this delightful 5 mile walk. With scenic views over the Pennines this circular route takes in some of the best countryside the area has to offer. The initial section of the walk offers easy walking through the Ealees Valley, Littleborough and along the Rochdale Canal towpath.

Whilst the final stretch is perhaps a little more testing the rewards are worth it with breathtaking views over Littleborough, Rochdale and beyond. Whether you choose to walk the entire route or split the walk into smaller sections, you will find no better way to explore the beauty of Littleborough and the South Pennines.
