About the Event

Join us on the first Friday of every month for a twilight trek across the hills and trails of Holcombe Moor and experience the wild and rugged moorland at night.

This event is tyically 4.5 - 6 miles in distance with a fair amount of elevation. Like all our events, however, there's always a community feel on our night hikes and a sense of collective enjoyment in hiking across the moors and hills, pausing as we do to take in the sights, the stars - And plenty of photos too!

And, of course, all the proceeds go towards funding our Youth Programmes and Community Activities.

Please read the following before signing up:

Dogs are welcome: However please keep them on a lead no more than 2m in length at all times.

Please note that between the months of March and September this is a legal requirement due to ground-nesting birds on the moors.

The route: Between 7 - 9km / 4.5 - 6 miles in length and typically involves around 280m / 920 feet of ascent, some of which may be considered steep. The route encompasses a variety of footpath and bridleway, both rocky and muddy, and moorland which can be wet and boggy.

The Sunnywood Project strives to be a Leave No Trace  organisation: We ask that, as best we can, we leave only footprints. Do not drop any litter – anyone caught doing so will not be welcome back on a Sunnywood Project event.

Start time and duration: We will aim to set off at 7pm. The event typically takes 2hrs 15mins to 2hrs 45mins depending on pace and enjoyment – As this is a supportive, group event accommodating a range of abilities, please consider the latest time advertised if making plans after the event.

Lumb Carr Rd Car Park, Holcombe, Bury BL8 4NN
