Walk Description

 

We'll park up on the road facing down towards Little Longstone. The plan is to head back up the road to Monsal Head and then drop down on to the Monsal trail crossing the viaduct towards Litton Mill. At the Mill we'll cross the river and head up in the direction of Litton. With Litton in sight we'll head towards Tansley Dale and then Cressbrook Dale before heading back up to Monsal Head.

Expectations are that there shouldn't be too much mud but be prepared.
