From the Bridleway crossroads on the ridge, at 362m, the HaggTor bridleway zigzags its way down to the A57 Snake Pass and crosses it continuing down to the bridge over the river at 227m.
The top is quite fast with lots of smooth naturally ‘bermed’ switchbacks and corner, the wide lines of the corners are smooth dirt but everywhere else there are small to medium sized loose rocks. The last switch back before the gate has a tree overhanging it. The middle section starts with 100m straight followed by a 180° switchback. Following this there are sheets of bedrock and embedded rocks with a few large loose rocks to avoid. A short tarmac section follow (watch out for vehicles, this is an access road to Hagg Farm) before you reach and cross the busy Snake Pass A road. The section below the main road has been surfaced with loose gravel chippings, giving terrible grip and making it dangerous if you need to brake sharply.
