Salt Line and Borrow Pit Meadows is a 25-minute walk or a 6-minute cycle from Alsager station.

The Salt Line is a well surfaced walking and cycle route along 1.8 miles of disused railway track with path side picnic tables and site information boards. There are two self-guided trails, Solar System and Tale of Trees, as well as Ranger guided walks throughout the year.

Borrow Pit Meadows is adjacent to the Salt Line and linked to it by access points and paths. Borrow Pit Meadows are about 40 acres in size with 1.25 miles of well surfaced undulating paths, with a further 0.6 miles of unsurfaced paths. It is a mosaic of habitats including meadows, woodland, wetland, grassland, farmland and scrub. With benches located at regular points along the surfaced routes, it is ideal for quiet recreation on foot or bike and will also be of interest for those who enjoy birds, plants, trees and wildlife.
