This walk is for the more experienced hikers only, as some of the routes may be difficult and steep in places.

This walk is about 12 miles and will take us about 5/6 hours to complete.

This is a grade 4 walk. Click here for further info.

We start by the canal in Todmorden and we follow an easy track which then takes us to Hebden Bridge, (Which is the easiest bit). Followed by a nice steady climb taking us towards Mytholmroyd.

We pass a "home for a Gnome" before turning right over a stile and up the steep side of the valley.  Here at the top, we take a breather before heading along the top of the moor to reach Stoodley Pike.  (Our lunch stop) About 8 Miles in!!

Now, that the climb is done, stocked up on lunch. We follow the reverse route of the Pennine Way to reach the Calderdale Way. It's downhill all the way as we then pass Mankinholes and Lumbutts.

Tarmac, wet and boggy fields and of course plenty of stiles to keep us going.  We eventually drop down to finish back at Todmorden.

Finally, we stagger in the local bar for a quick refreshment before heading home.

Please note: This is a tough walk and is graded 4 for a reason.

Please can we meet at the entrance to the Train station for 10.30am, to leave no later than 10.45am

Please no dogs on this walk.

    Unfortunately this has been changed to a date I can't make, and I was looking forward to it! Ah well.

    Stuart, I was just thinking that when you are checking out your final route it probably would not kill us all to do the extra couple of miles you are thinking of adding along part of the Calderdale Way as the views along there really shouldn't be missed.
