Additional Event Information
This approx 7 mile route would suit the more adventurous rider. Setting out along the Sett Valley Trail a steady ascent is then made via country lanes and byways. Views from the top are stunning in all directions and there is the further reward of a decent canter stretch across the moor, if all riders are happy to do so. The route then descends, at times steeply, from Lantern Pike via the Pennine Bridleway before rejoining the Sett Valley Trail.

Going is at times rocky and uneven with some slippery and mobile sections. This is true both going up and down but most particularly on the steep descent from Lantern Pike.
The Sett Valley Trail is multi-user so cyclists and walkers with dogs are likely to be encountered.
It is possible some HGV traffic may be encountered for a short section of road.
There are alpacas in a field adjacent to the Trail close to the start/end point.
Some livestock (sheep/cattle) may be present both on and alongside the route.
Places are £35/horse and rider combination, group sizes are limited to 6+guide. All riders must have adequate Public Liability Insurance to cover themselves and their horses.
