I prefer to do this route anticlockwise; start with the captivating bleakness of the moorland, then onto the busier Blackstone section. The run between the two can get a little boggy, but worth the slop :)

A lot of boggy areas and many were impassible without getting drenched

Great walk. Easy route to follow. The packhorse trail is fairly boggy when wet, but still manageable. Our spaniel loved it. If there's a downside it's the start and finish by the M62.

Easy trail to follow although we must of picked the wettest day in October. So very wet. Very boggy. But all in all. Still an enjoyable walk

Really enjoyed this walk with our son and our dog. Great views and a mix of terrain. Beware of the peat bogs though. Our dog managed to land himself in one which was a bit scary and very smelly!

We started at the layby on the A672 and followed the route round to the left. The walk up was beautiful, not too steep and lots of great views. As we headed back down, the ground became a bit boggy in parts. We took a wrong turn as the trail split in two and rather than heading down towards the reservoir, we carried straight on back towards where we started. The route was VERY boggy so unless you like having wet, muddy shoes, I'd recommend heading down towards the reservoir instead.

Lovely day to go walking but despite the lovely weather the ground was very boggy in places. Path was well marked out until after the blackstones and it became a bit more remote and harder to follow. Pretty much just walking through a field! Still enjoyed it and managed to cover 11k despite taking a different route.

Great walk! Clear path along the loop. The dog loved it. It was quite boggy in places and low visibility but i imagine there are lovely views on a clear day

Great loop, spoiled a little by the amount of litter in the car park as some people have no respect for this beautiful country.

This was a nice easy trail, perfect for a leisurely walk. Took us 2.30hours to do it with a small break in the middle. great for a summers day, although I can imagine it's always windy up there. great variety of footpaths, from paved, to rocky to moorland. some really great views too.
