A nice walk out
Aug 2020 • Solo
Starting from malin bridge enter the nature trail from the mouse hole and follow it passed an old mill pond to where you can split and go left by the next dam or right and cross the stepping stones, then onto rivelin park and across the bridge and follow the path to the s bends, cross the road and continue along the path passing old mill ponds and structures from an industry long gone, keep going and eventually you’ll come to the old post office which is the end of the nature trail, about 3-4 miles from here you’ve endless choices of where to go Hope this helps anyone interested Not suitable for infirm, pushchairs or wheelchairs in places due to the ground conditions, PS after heavy rain the river does cover the stones, don’t try an be a hero please and be safe

Great day out for kids and dogs!
Aug 2020
What a fabulous gem on the outskirts of Sheffield! Although it was fairly busy, it didnt feel too overwhelming and we were able to find a safe spot for a paddle in the river without anyone else being nearby. 7 year old and dog both had great fun - we started at the cafe and went up to the left past the playpark so this route takes you past the old mill house and also the chair in the middle of the river. We will definitely come back and explore the bits we missed this time.

Beautiful
Aug 2020 • Family
It was a toss up between a 30 minute drive to Rivelin or 1.5 hour drive to Ingleton Falls , we opted for Rivelin and were very impressed with what we found. What a beautiful place to walk and explore. We followed another reviewers post and put in S6 6GF and ended up at the OTHER end to the water park and cafe but this served as perfect encouragement to three 8year olds to continue walking. They played on the stepping stones and paddled numerous times along the walk. There are benches dotted along the trail for tired legs and places to set up a picnic but there are no toilets so please be aware. There are forks in the trail but as long as you stick by the river and head in the same direction you will eventually get to the cafe. It took us about 2 hours walking, stopping, playing and eating to get an ice cream at the end and the return walk was surprisingly quick, about an hour, even with tired little legs. The paths closer to the cafe end is more open and easier to walk on...the further you head in the other direction, the rougher the terrain, lots of raised branch roots etc but its quieter at that end and we enjoyed it more as it felt like we had the place to ourselves. We arrived around 10.30am on a Saturday morning and hit the last parking spot at Rails Road car park. By the time we returned 3 hours later, cars were parked all along the road. The car park is free. Would definitely recommend this place and we'll be coming back in different seasons to enjoy the scenery.

Nice, but........

I thoroughly enjoyed this walk. We went as a family and laughed so much especially at the youngest trying to negotiate the stepping stones. The dog loved the water. There are plenty of seats all the way down the trail, a few are in the sun. The walk would have attracted five stars but there are no litter or dog waste bins anywhere on the trail, which is disappointing. Hence poo bags left in the bushes.

Came here yesterday (16/04/2020) for the first time and was very impressed at how lovely the place is, sadly the cafe wasnt open due to the circumstances but we fetched drinks anyway and the pooch had a good walk diving in and out of the streams
