Monsal Trail
Plan a trip

This spectacular trail on the trackbed of a former mainline railway across the Peak District is one of England's best new cycle routes. The path is entirely family-friendly, and the tunnels provide extra cycling interest. Note that there is currently a gap in the route between Rowsley and Bakewell - you can take a stony bridleway over the hill, which is safe and enjoyable but perhaps not advisable for road bikes!
