We live just down the road from Rivelin Valley Nature Trail, and I head down there all the time to get a little peace and quiet. It's clean, well maintained, and perfect for dog walkers and families. The trail is also brilliant for runners, providing an interesting and fun run.

A sneak peak away from the hustle of the town, Rivelin valley trail is a beautiful and peaceful place to visit. The trail is not at all complicated and exhausting. Go for it!!

Rivelin is VERY dog friendly with plenty of disposal bins and spaces where the dogs can run around off the lead with no real danger. That said, please be careful when the water's high and near the weirs as they could easily get trapped in the currents and high banks. Miles of beautiful river walks with many shallows where you...

Great lengthy walk in peaceful surrounds, ideal for dog walkers, couples and families. Would recommend Wellies and walking boots as can be wet and muddy in some areas, toilet and café facilities near the start.

The Rivelin Valley Trail is a picturesque introduction to nature right in the heart of Sheffield. The trail runs along side the fast flowing River Rivelin and is two and a half miles long. Along the trail are remnants of Sheffield industrial past - the very many water mills that were here harnessing the power of the surging river. All... More

Lovely place its the gateway to the Derbyshire, Peak District. It starts just outside the busy Hillsborough area and winds its way out into the countryside. There is a play area for children and a café which does get quite busy and is very good. There is the river running all the way through the nature trail and few dams... More

Spent a whole day going down this in May this year with friends, lovely scenery and miles of trails to walk. Worth it if you have a day free.

The river is absolutely beautiful and the trail is lovely and peaceful. Myself and partner came here in October 2013 and it was very wet and cold, so would recommend earlier in the year. However; the weather did not ruin our day. We walked across stepping stones to get to an old chair in the middle of the river, and... More

Three stories here industrial development and Social and natural History. The trail takes you back in time more than 200 years through the development of the Rivelin Valley as a place of industrial, human and natural development. If you manage to find the Roscoe Wheel then you have found my ancestral home. Stand looking at the wheel housing from the... More

You can take this beautiful country walk from the bottom of riverlin road alway up to old hospital. On a beautiful day you can spend the day walking between the old dams. There is a park with a coffee shop, the coffee shop isn't great. There are pubs along the route where you can buy lunch or dinner. Once at... More
