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.

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
