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

Rivelin Valley is such a wonderful place to explore. Start off at the car park next to the fishing lake. If you have small children take some stale bread to feed the ducks. Follow the track at the side of the lake. At the T junction cross the road and go through the park, past the children's play ground, cross... More

I have often come here with one of my close friends and our dogs. Its always a great walk, the dogs love it as there's lots of smells for them to explore and places for them to play. My dog in particular loves how muddy it can get.

Having lived locally for a few years we've often done the trail, both on foot (walking and running) and by push bike. The paths are really well looked after and easy to follow - it's impossible to get lost. There's a cafe at the Hillsborough end where you can get decent enough snacks and the most important good brew. I... More

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.

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
