    Stage 2 of the GM Ringway, Greater Manchester's long-distance trail, follows a series of tranquil, traffic-free footpaths through the Mersey Valley greenbelt of South Manchester.

    Highlights include:
    - The wildlife and greenery of Chorlton Water Park
    - The trees and birdlife of Kenworthy Woods
    - An especially pretty meander of the River Mersey
    - An old country lane near Didsbury village
    - Fletcher Moss Park, one of the most attractive and varied areas of parkland in Manchester.

    This section has now been revised to finish at Didsbury Village Metrolink station rather than East Didsbury, reducing the amount of roadside walking on this and the following stage.

    Note that the latter parts of the stage close to the Mersey in Didsbury can be flooded after heavy rain. If this is the case, please follow the diversions indicated.

    The stage links Sale Water Park and Didsbury Village Metrolink stations. At present (early 2023(, dogs are permitted on Metrolink tram services. If this changes, however, for those with dogs the start is a short walk from bus stops on Hardy Lane, Chorlton or Old Hall Lane, Sale while East Didsbury rail station is not far from the end. Buses also run from Didsbury back to Chorlton & elsewhere.

    About the Calorie Calculator

    Our Calorie Calculator estimates how many Calories you will burn using Metabolic Equivalent (MET) values from Compendium of Physical Activities. The Compendium idenitifes the relative energy cost of undertaking various activities compared with doing nothing. We then combine this with your weight and the estimated duration of the activity, taking into account the length of the route and the hills involved, to estimate the total Calories burned.

    When selecting an Activity setting, select the speed you would normally travel at on flat ground.

    Please remember, the estimated number of Calories is just a guide and the actual number of Calories burned may vary depending on other factors such as weather and terrain.
