Rushy Hill is a highpoint to the north of Rochdale. Its summit is marked by a Trig Point and a electricity pylon is not far from the summit either. A golf course also leads to the edge of the hill top, with an old pack horse trail that is now the Pennine Bridleway running along the edge of the hill. The summit commands views south towards Rochdale, east towards Blackstone Edge, north towards Brown Wardle Hill, and west towards Knowl Moor.
