We are working to build-up a picture of what routes look like. To do that we are asking volunteers to survey routes so that we can communicate features, obstacles and challenges that may make a route desirable or not.

Slow Ways surveyors are asked to complete some basic online training, but they are not vetted. If you are dependent on the survey information being correct in order to complete a route, we recommend that you think critically about the information provided. You may also wish to wait until more than one survey has been completed.

Help people know more about this route by volunteering to submit a survey.

Very enjoyable , not accessible to wheelchairs prams etc
Paths are 4/5 and access is K
Very steep and many stiles
Moderately strenuous climbs both ends quite steep , but short , the climb out of Hebden has alternate easier routes using bridleways .
Once up about 30 minute, It’s a relatively pleasant hike with mild undulating footpath , with short road section at Lumbutts for about 1/3. Great views most of the way at first the Hebden bridge and Heptonstall towns then after Studley pike views of Todmordon and the Pennines . We cross over the Pennine way near Studley Pike .
Short but steep descent into Todmordon, and found a cafe and drank coffee . Caught bus back to Hebden , every 15 minutes on a weekday.
It’s not a light afternoon walk as well as the steep ends at Todmordon and Hebden , if the weather changed it would be miserable and cold if not wearing correct gear , there are plenty of escape routes off down in to the Calder-valley
with plenty of busses .

This is a great route for views over the Calder Valley, but with steep climbs at both the beginning and end whichever way you walk it. Certainly walking from Hebden to Tod, if the weather is good, many will prefer to climb the extra 200' and follow the Pennine Way to take in the iconic Stoodley Pike, but in fact the Pennine Bridleway on this Slow Ways route provides a gently descending, less exposed and very clear path below the Pike, and passes a good pub too by way of compensation! The c.150 steps up from Tod through modern housing estates are a bit of a killer, but the views along the rest of the route more than make up for this slightly grotty start/finish.
