This really is a gorgeous trail, and we didn't have time to discover all of it. We parked up by the waterpark bit which was closed for maintenance, got a (delicious) ice cream from the cafe and headed to the stepping stones. There's a cute...More

We recently walked the Riverlin Valley Nature Trail during another UK heatwave. The trail is mostly sheltered by trees and therefore makes the perfect walk in the sun. Lots of people on the trail but it didn’t feel too crowded. Only wish we had a...More

Never fails to please! A walk with the kids or a run through, den building or just dipping your feet in the river. It's really a lovely place to visit and appreciate

Rivelin valley walk is very very nice, it did help as the morning was beautiful; however the walk is excellent, well signposted and historical plaques all along the trail telling you about the 20 water mills that used to be there from the early 1800s
