JOGLE Day 53 Rushop Hall to Hartington
Leaving Rushop Hall we mainly follow the National Trail, the Pennine Bridleway not to be confused with the Pennine Way. The idea behind Pennine Bridleway was to provide a long distance route horse riders could also use. Cyclists can also use bridleways.
First we follow lanes to Peak Forest and beyond. When we reach Hay Dale, I will follow the Limestone Way down the dry valley to pick up the Pennine Bridleway again further down the valley.
Then undulating paths and lane to the steep sided Wye Dale, with a sharp climb back up the other side followed by a crossing of the busy A6.
Paths and Lanes to the A515. Then down to the High Peak disused railway track. The track is much loved by cyclists, so be prepared for dring dring sounds.
At Parsley Hay we take a right fork on the Tissington Trail. When we reach the B5054 we turn right down then up Hartington Dale to reach Hartington itself.
