Didn't get the chance to walk it all but did a couple of miles from Monsal Head. It's a relaxing, at times spectacular, beautifully maintained old railway walk. Will certainly return to cover more of it on my next visit to The Peaks!

Time spent walking part of the trail from Monsal. Lovely walk. Busy day. Lots of bikes. Great ice cream at the top and amazing views.

Wear good shoes! Easy walk but sooooooo long. My only gripe would be that people do not stick to the rules of the trail, all dogs must be on a lead at all times...our dog does not like other dogs so, really stressed him out...More
