The walk starts at a small car park just off the A627 (between Oldham and Ashton). It continues along the remains of a canal which has been filled in and converted to a bridleway and footpath. After leaving the disused canal it travels up past a local heritage centre via two rural lanes, which used to be heavily industrialised, before using several footpaths to reach open countryside. There is a climb up to the tower at the top of the hills, which is our destination. The return leg is along two rural lanes, one designated as a 'quiet' lane, then along part of the national cycle route to reach the edge of the country park. The final part of the walk goes roughly parallel with the River Medlock to the car park area. This walk crosses the Medlock several times. There are excellent views on the middle stretch of the walk i.e. from leaving the heritage centre to the cycle path. The majority of the walk is in countryside. There is a cafe and toilets at the heritage centre. This walk is classed as moderate because there are a number of muddy or boggy patches.
