This is a walk if you're not too stable in your feet or not an avid walker. But equally as much it's stunning scenery and relaxing atmosphere make it all worth the effort be it a 10 minute stroll or the full distance. Really pretty...More

Joined at Monsal Head so a steep trek down and back but once on the trail, plenty of flat, good quality walking available. Countryside views are beautiful if similar to the Middlewood Way, but with the addition of at least one long, curving tunnel. Fascinating....More

One of the best ways to enjoy the Peak District is on bicycle. Rent a bicycle and ride the trail. It was a lovely way to see the sights. We rode the entire distance from Bakewell to the end and back again.

What a great day out. Teenagers surprised themselves by actually enjoying the ride. It is up hill from Bakewell to Wye Dale but the incline is gentle so even our unfit Xbox addicts could manage. Beautiful views of Cressbrook mill and lime kilns. Great day...More
