We visited on a sunny autumn weekday (not half term) and the trail was surprisingly busy. It is a lovely place for walking or cycling. Good views, interesting features and good surface. It runs from Bakewell outskirts towards Buxton. Out of season the only refreshments...More

An excellent day's cycling on hired bikes with friends. Wonderful views of the limestone scenery and the legacy of industrial archaeology.

A beautiful walk along the river and disused railway track, through a long railway tunnel and over a viaduct, the scenery from here was spectacular of the river below and valley.

You can of course walk the Monsal Trail, but it is easier on a bike. The trail is a disused railway so there are no steep hills. My prefered start point would be Hassop Station, which isn't particularly near Hassop, but it does have a...More
