Within a few miles of Macclesfield there is open countryside with rolling hills, miles of footpaths and bridleways, quiet lanes, woodlands, forest, rivers, canals, reservoirs, traditional pubs, country parks and visitor centres.
In the pages of the Macclesfield Outdoors website there are details of walking routes, orienteering locations and events,
