There is a cafe at Parsley Hay which sells well priced food and drink, and there is bicycle hire available there too. There is a great notice board that shows the line at the height of its... More

We were staying at Sandybrook and so wandered about half a mile to join the Tissington Trail at a bridge. Much quieter than walking to Ashbourne along the main road! Not that far at all , took us about 30 minutes. Coming back we walked on to Thorpe and would have gone further if we hadn't had some shopping with... More

Took to the trail from Ashbourne to Tissington (and back) and thoroughly enjoyed it. The trail itself is well maintained though it could do with a few more sporadic seats along the trail. Depending on when you go, carry a drink with you as the Tea room at Tissington is only open at certain times on certain days.

Great ride but be better prepared than we were for a February ride. It's cold and windy. The snow on the hills should have been a warning. The views and the industrial history fantastic. We also made the mistake of starting at High Peak junction instead of Middleton Top. I do a lot of cycling and the two climbs had... More

Found this to be a great winter escape with few tourists although the temperature was -2. Had it all to myself except for a few dog walkers along route.

This is a lovely way to see the Peak District countryside whether walking through many trails that use this in part or cycling from Ashbourne to Parsley Hay.

Through wonderful countryside. Yje pipes of the peak are not far away from the trail and worth a visit as is Tissington

This is a lovely, mostly flat, mostly paved walk with good links to other footpaths including the limestone way through to Parwich. This would be fantastic to cycle along and the many cyclists we saw confirm this! In parts the views are limited due to the railway banking but when it opens up the views are gorgeous.

We spent a lovely day here, we hired bikes from the Parsley hay cycle centre, the ride was very pretty and easy to Ashbourn the return was a little more of a challenge, it has a slight incline and meant harder work, would do it again but from the other direction
