'The walk follows the route of the original Pennine Way from Black Hill across Saddleworth Moors to Standedge and it can be very difficult in adverse weather conditions (rain and mist). Crossing these moors is not to be recommended in misty conditions without the aid of a compass and the abilty to use it effectively.'
