Event details

Off the Beaten Track

Off the Beaten TrackSalford has an extensive network of traffic-free routes which link in to the Bridgewater Canal and are perfect for leisure, enjoying the wildlife or even a traffic-free way of getting to work.

Many of the routes have been built using former railway lines (looplines) which have very gentle gradients making them ideal for cycling. Once on the network of looplines, it is possible to travel for miles through Salford and to neighbouring districts. The loopline network links the Bridgewater Canal, Worsley Woods,and Blackleach Country Park and runs through Worsley, Monton, Boothstown, Eccles, Little Hulton and Walkden.

You can download a copy of the Off The Beaten Track map which shows you the current network of routes.

A number of the routes have recently been improved with others planned for improvements over the next couple of years. Each route has its own webpage which includes more detail about the improvements proposed and when they are planned to take place.

Please visit the website for a copy of the map.
