The Salford Trail
In Conjuntion with Salford City Council and Transport for Greater Manchester
Offically opened by Stuart Maconie on May 30th 2017
Explore the heritage, countryside and rural areas of Salford with a series of ten walks.
The Salford Trail is a new, long distance walk of about 50 miles/80 kilometres and entirely within the boundaries of the City of Salford. The route is varied, going through rural areas and green spaces, with a little road walking in between. Starting from the cityscape of Salford Quays, the Trail passes beside rivers and canals, through country parks, fields, woods and moss lands. It uses footpaths, tracks and disused railway lines known as 'loop lines'. The Trail circles around to pass through Kersal, Agecroft, Walkden, Boothstown and Worsley before heading off to Chat Moss. After crossing this vast landscape, the Trail returns to Salford Quays from the historic Barton swing bridge and aqueduct.
The Trail has been divided into sections, each accessible by public transport. There is a leaflet for each section describing the route and giving the transport options.
