The Monsal Trail is a traffic free route along the former Midland Railway line for walkers, cyclists, horse riders and wheelchair users through some of the Peak District's most spectacular limestone dales. Most of the route was opened to the public in 1981. Over the years its tunnels were slowly converted into safe passages for users of the Trail. The public can now experience the full length of the former railway route at their own pace and see breathtaking views from numerous look-out points.Show more

Really lovely walk. In combination with a bicycle ride, at certain points there splits between walkers and cyclist. Pathway all the way round and well signposted. Show more

You can always be certain the Eastern Moors will be thronged on a sunny day, and besides, it seems to be paved from Bradfield to Ladybower nowadays. Going up by Shireowlers gives you many choices of route on top. This route takes you left onto Abbey Bank passing opposite Ouzleden Clough, then drifts round to the right to catch the path towards Lost Lad. A loss of height down Sheepfold Clough, then an ascent by Foul Clough after crossing Abbey Brook takes you to a vantage point opposite the gorge, where soft grass can be a good excuse for resting. There are no paths, but also no difficulties in going round Crooked Clough. Then, follow the way to the obvious rocks the rest of the way to Derwent Edge and beyond is by flagstone path. Show more
