Nice reasonably flat trail with some great views. Good for cyclists and pedestrians. Smooth enough for pushchairs. I enjoyed running on the flat which you don't get to do very often in Derbyshire.

We did part of the trail from Hayfield before heading off right up to lantern pike. Nice easy walking with our dog in the summer sunshine . Toilets and picnic area in the car park a bonus .
