What is it?
An off-road cycle and pedestrian route from Ashton-under-Lyne that heads North to Park Bridge.

Follow signs and join Turner Lane for 500m (by the Train Station). Join the route of the disused Ashton to Oldham railway line for 3.0 Km to Park Bridge heritage centre at the Oldham boundary.
