My wife and I have just come back after a 3 hour round walk of the Rivelin Valley Nature Trail. Well marked routes, waterfalls, stepping stones, Kingfishers, Herons, lots of places to sit and picnic...it's got the lot. On our 3 hour walk we saw only 5 other people, it's a great place if you want some peace and quiet... More

Not only picturesque walk but great remnants of Sheffield's history, earliest we saw back to 1581.Walk is a wooded riverside ramble for several miles with regular historic sites from 16th, 17th 18th century-old water wheels etc, for earliest cutlery, foundry work. Not easily suitable for prams, really young, but great for dogs (could do though with a few more poo... More

You can park at the top, bottom or along the road by the cafe, but where ever you park this valley is quite magical on three counts... firstly it is actually a beautiful walk that in an hour takes you from Sheffield to the outskirts of the peak district while following an attractive river... secondly... along the way there are...

The Rivelin Valley Nature trail in Sheffield is a beautiful riverside walk. Near the beginning of the walk is a decent cafe serving a range of drinks, cakes and hot meals. There is also a small paddling water park that looked fun but we didn't go in. Behind the cafe is a large and well maintained play park. All in... More

I live locally to the rivelin valley trail and have always walked ther. It still retains a beauty unlike anywhere else. The winding river through leafy trees in the summer and the beautiful light that comes through in the winter. Here you will see small waterfalls if you look carefully and sightings f Kevin the kingfisher are not too rare.... More

Very nice place to spend time. Relatively easy walk and the bonus of a nice cafe. You can go for as little as half an hour but more is more. Good playground for kids and nice place to walk your dog.

The trail takes you along the River Rivelin - a river full of surprises and historical importance either out from Malin Bridge or in from the valley between Stannington and Fulwood. I have only once seen the kingfisher, but have seen lots of heron, dippers, butterflies and, at this time of year, it is full of colour. There are wonderful... More

One of several trails that take you from the grittiest of the industrial revolution past to the sublime sweep of the Peak District. Outstanding place for a nature walk -- walk as far as you care, a mile or two or ten
