Good walk to New Mills and back. Mainly on level ground but a few steepish places. Would suit most able bodied people

This would be a lovely flat walk, especially for small children, if it weren’t for the frequent dog leavings to be found in the grassy verges just where kids would want to walk and look for sticks etc. Perhaps more bins could be provided to...More

The Sett Valley Trail is an easy walk, good to visit at different times of year to see the changing of the seasons. The Hayfield end also provides a good opportunity to explore the village and get some refreshments.

Lovely, well-maintained path great for bikes, we took it from Hayfield campsite to New Mills with the kids. The round trip was about 7 miles, and there were plenty of places to stop for a rest along the way.
