Had a day out backpacking around Teggs Nose country park Macclesfield forest .
In lovely Autumn sunshine ,walked around the circular trail which is part of the old quarry and checked out all the old machinery left in situ to show how the stone was quarried in the past the Views are stunning from this high prometary the highest point is Shutlingsloe known as the Cheshire Matterhorn over 500 metres on the crest of the beautiful Macclesfied forest on leaving the trail which is also Gritstone Trail heading South looking onto the Cheshire plain with Jodrell Bank in the distance .
The followed the trail down a steep decent to arrive at the lower level of Teggs nose,and Bottoms Reservoirs stayed a while to take in the lovely and peaceful scenery, then took the path by the reservoirs headed onwards on an old track through woods and small stream running through with stepping stones to be able to cross following the course of the stream the path started to get steep and bypassed hacked way lane, clough house farm .
And up the old pack horse track known as The Saddlers Way . This is a very rutted track with boulders and stones to traverse . I would think this could be bad in heavy rain with torrent of water coming down .
As It was dry it was ok carried on up and up and on on and on very steep Incline , I could see the the summit in sight then arrived at the top back to the start point . A lovely afternoons walk

A lot of visitors who come to Teggs Nose Country park , Just come for a drive out use the cafe, and sit and take in the Views ,which are lovely over the hills and Macclesfield forest .
Others just do the short 2 Mile circular walk around the quarry and summit .
Understandably as Its so steep a decent to the reservoir tracks trails .
But is worth going off the beaten track to see all the different terrain and lovely variety of scenery .
