Kidsgrove to Stoke Ridgeway

14 km / 9 miles

Staffordshire, Stoke on Trent
An elevated green route, to walk from Kidsgrove Station to Stoke Station. An unofficial extension of the Gritstone Trail. 80% of the walk is off-road through or alongside woodland and parkland/pasture, and there are fine elevated views at numerous points. This is substantially a ridge and hill walk, designed for those who are bored with the dull level plodding of canal and lake walks - and so you must enjoy a constant variation of slopes, some of them quite steep.
