Went on a damp day, the air was fresh. Was a lovely spot to get some fresh air. Just be careful with little ones as there is a lot of water around and some paths are quite narrow with steep drops. There are two car parks, one at each end. The one that we used was at south end and... More

The trail is very close to Hillsborough, and can be easily reached. The trail has many features to be seen, and is a wonderful stroll for families and dog walkers. We reached the trail through a huge cemetery, making the day even more exciting and unexpected. The small river nearby, midst all the greenery, makes it a delightful walk. Keep... More

This trail is easily accessed by Supertram, road or on foot. It's a lovely place to take a stroll, particularly when not too busy. There s a calm about it that makes for a relaxing, enjoyable wander that all the family can enjoy. A nice little cafe at the start is worth a visit too.

Brilliant refreshing walk. It is ideal for families, dog walkers, runners, cyclists. It is a very popular place specially in the summer and it's not hard to understand why.

Looking for a nice peaceful walk through a wooded valley with an easy pathway alongside the river, then this walk is for you. Ample parking facilities and a nice cafe just off the main road to Manchester, with a large children,s playground at the rear which is securely fenced to keep toddlers secure. Best on a dry day

Went on a freezing Sunday in January but the kids loved the walk by the fast flowing water. A good example of local history

This is one of our favourite Sheffield walks and we are privileged to have it on our doorstep. A great walk to be enjoyed in any season, be it a sunny day or a frosty/snowy day this walk is lovely. It is interesting too, with bridges and stepping stones and grindstones dotted along the way.

After moving back into the area where I grew up, I've had the chance of being reaquainted with the edge of the peak district and the gem that is Rivelin. We use the area as a place to go on a summers day, a short cut in winter and a breath of fresh air in Spring/Autumn. The cafe is really... More
