A very good scenic route that can be taken at various paces, although you can get legged up on some of the busier parts of the canal towpath. As detailed in the map I took the shortcut alongside part of Halfax road but think I'm gonna take the road next time, as I struggled with rear wheel traction on some of the steeper sections. All- in- all a great route!
