Lovely tunnel, gorge and viaduct walk from Blackwell to Bakewell. Park at Bakewell, get the TransPeak bus towards Buxton and the driver will tell you where to get off - for Blackwell - which signposts you to start of walk. Two cafes at former stations,...More

A great day out. Parked at Hassop station/cafe. We ate here before our walk - very nice - will do a separate review for that. And did a lovely circular walk taking in part of the trail (including the impressive Headstone Tunnel and Monsal Viaduct).......More

Great trail, we started at Blackwell Mill, cycled to the end in Brakewell and back. If you your thinking of doing the same, try to get there early, we arrived at 11am and fortunately got the last car park space. From the car park it's...More

We are trying to get fitter, honest. It's an absolutely beautiful track, well maintained with stunning scenery. If you are looking for a great ride you should start at Bakewell Station and ride to Wye. It's a slight incline all the way, but fresh legs...More

We are from Spain and everytime we fly to the East Midlands, we drive to Monsal head for a day out. The scenery is breathtaking and if you walk down there is a place with beautiful waterfalls.

About 8.5 miles long, this flat tarmacked ex- railway line is a fabulous walk even through tunnels and over a viaduct. It seemed to be enjoyed by cyclists, walkers, families, couples etc. and is great for a fair weather day. I would add it is...More

Walked sections of the Monsal Trail with a group of friends. It is a wide and level well-surfaced path (after recent heavy rain, it was still well-drained). It is completely flat (being an old railway track), but offers only occasional views (often, it is hemmed...More

We enjoyed a traffic free Monsal Trail yesterday. The parking was full and we managed to get one slot right at the end. My 12 year son was keen to do cycling and I wanted to get my wife to try out cycling. The route...More

We cycled from Bakewell station to Blackwell Mill. There were lots to see and trail is slightly up hill, but not hard at all. On the way back it took us only 45 minutes mainly free wheeling. We made sure we gave walkers notice when...More

I would say yes if you have a well behaved dog who will come to you when called. The issue is the cyclists who don't let you know they are coming up behind you! I have walked and cycled along here with my dog off the lead... More
