A network of green walking routes connects people to the places they want to go

Manchester’s Green Trail Walking Route was established in 2012 by Manchester City Council, the Ramblers, City of Trees, Living Streets and Transport for Greater Manchester. The Green Trail is a walking circuit of 14 routes circumnavigating the City of Manchester and connecting many of the City’s parks, woodlands and open spaces.
The route was developed to better link Manchester residents with the green spaces on their doorsteps. The Trail links up most of the parks and green spaces in Manchester with quieter urban streets and public transport links.
A team of Ramblers volunteers checked each section of the Trail, suggested improvements, developed maps and route descriptions as well as organising free led walks to encourage people to use it.
