Summary: This classic challenge, set in high country on the west edge of the Peak District National Park, involves a circuit of three Cheshire Peaks – Tegg's Nose (370m), Shining Tor (559m) and Shutlingsloe (506m). The route covers part of the national park but is not wholly within the boundaries of it. As well as the three peaks the route takes in Macclesfield Forest, Nessit Hill, Cumberland Brook, the popular walkers Cat and Fiddle Inn on the A537 Macclesfield to Buxton road, Lamaload Reservoir and Walker Barn. There are 820 metres of climbing on the approximate thirteen mile route which walkers are free to route change as long as the three peaks are climbed on the circuit. (Note: There is an alternative route, twenty miles long with over 1.000 metre of climbing, devised by Graham Beech. See Ramblers at Cheshire, below)
