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

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

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.
