Sixty years ago I travelled up and down the trail in a steam train. The views were captivating and remain so. Yesterday, it was crowded with walkers, waggers, staggerers, wobblers and racers, on legs, wheels and bikes. It was annoying at times, of course. And...More

Going from Monsal Head there's a steep walk down to the trail but once on the trail it's very easy and mostly level walking in either direction. The tunnels are well lit and there are information boards dotted along the trail at points of interest.

Very popular with hikers, runners, dog walkers and then tourists on cheap mountain bikes on hire without any lights! No demarcation on the paths to separate cyclists and pedestrians which can make it dangerous especially in the tunnels. Parking is fairly expensive. Views are beautiful...More

This a fairly flat walk as it is an old railway line which takes you through several of the old railway tunnels, can be used as part of several circular walks in the area

It's a bit busy, but you can cycle along here, walk your dog, take kids and possibly get a wheelchair along it. It's very managed, so very tourist friendly, ie lots of car parks and cafes at strategic points, but still goes through some jaw-droppingly...More

Starting at the northern end of the Trail we cycled the full length ending in Bakewell. A great day out. One word of warning is that the trail is best suited to maintain bike tyres as it is rather rough and gravelly in places, probably...More

Stayed in Ashford for a week alone with my little dog and walked the trail at least twice a day. As a women alone i felt very safe and the terrain is flat so this trail made my holiday. Wonderful.

We caught the bus from Bakewell and asked the driver to tell us where to get off. Good job too as it seemed to be in the middle of nowhere. He directed us though and we walked for about a mile to the start of...More
