Good loop trail of reasonable length. The gorge can get a bit overgrown in later summer. When you reach the Monsal trail, try to get back down to the river as the walk is much more interesting than staying on the disused railway. Opportunities for rock climbing also in the gorge.
A good circular route with excellent views of the Ribblehead viaduct. The path is extremely well marked and heavily trafficked. The descent is steep and you need to take a hard right turn, after the descent to take the Bridleway back towards the viaduct. The wind was extremely strong on our walk with very little shelter along the ridge. The route can get very busy on weekends as it is part of the 3-peaks challenge.
