Where is Roe Green loopline?

Roe Green loopline starts in the Monton Green area next to Dukes Drive. The loopline offers 7.2km of traffic free walking and cycling opportunities and continues to the border of Bolton.

Over the past decade Salford city council have invested in improving the route and as a result the route is popular with walkers, cyclists, runners and dog walkers.

If you are a keen park runner get yourself down there on a Saturday morning for 9am and join fellow enthusiasts.

Why this route?

This is a really easy and enjoyable walk. Starting out on Chatsworth Road in Swinton and following the tarmac path through Worsley Golf Club to Monton before joining the loopline. With this route the majority of your walk is traffic free and you are surrounded by nature.

Being less than an hour to complete this is a perfect route for anyone who is short on time and the majority of the walk is flat.

What kit will I need?

The route can be very muddy and slippery underfoot especially following bad weather so a good pair of walking boots are required. We suggest taking the following kit as standard:

  • Comfortable walking boots (ensure they have been worn in first)
  • First Aid kit
  • Good quality waterproof jacket & trousers (the weather can change dramatically even in the summer months)
  • Warm hat & gloves (weather dependent)
  • Any additional equipment you feel you require such as walking poles etc
