Head in the Clouds

34 km / 21 miles

Cheshire, Staffs
Although not quite the highest points in Staffordshire and Cheshire, Hen Cloud on the Roaches and The Cloud, in their beautifully isolated locations make splendid objectives on a full day’s circuit starting from Tittesworth Reservoir and being linked by Gun Hill.

Collectors of trig points should be in their element as the above mentioned summits offer three.

In between the route explores the Dane Valley, parts of the Gritstone Trail and the Staffordshire Way.
