We biked this trail, although you're not supposed to. We came across a few other bikers so carried on. Really interesting and we'll layed out with easy access. Suited to all! Definitely worth a visit.

steeped in history, old mills, river rivelin and some of the best scenery in Yorkshire, excellent old country pubs, easy walking along the river bank, with the odd cafe and picnic area, try out the old holly bush pub for a refreshment or too, dogs are welcomed. wild life a plenty.

What a great trail to go off walking with your dogs, few pubs near by and on the way. Lots of ponds and jump pools if that's also your thing.

Lovely walk a few minutes from hillsborough, good cafe with nice food and amenities, playground, paddling pools, river side walk. Great photo opportunities with lots of wildlife, including herons and king fishers, love the wishing chair by artist Jason Thompson, representing the history of the valleys metalworkings. Walk over the road at the s-bend for a quieter walk.

It was a cold day but the family enjoyed a walk here. Pity that you have to watch where you step every so often (dog mess), but otherwise, we can't wait to go back in the warmer weather. Good tarmaced paths in parts too.

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.
