Meeting at the car park at the Ranger Station and toilets at Ogden Reservoir from 09:45 for a 10:00 start we will travel an interesting 13 mile route that visits Rooden and Readycon Dean Reservoirs, White Hill, Windy Hill and crosses the M62 towards Blackstone Edge at the highest point of any motorway in the UK via the Pennine Way footbridge.
