Spent a very pleasant afternoon riding the trail, has some fantastic views and is an easy ride. Well worth a stop at Hassop station for a drink and feed!

We have done this walk to Bakewell and to Monsal head. As it is flat so good for families and the older generation. If you want to cycle there is a hire place at Hasop Station Cafe / shop.

We walked from Monsal Head towards Great Longstone, so took in the longest tunnel and the viaduct. Apart from the walk down to the trail, it was really flat and a lovely walk. Great pubs for lunch in Great Longstone as well.

We loved this walk. Not strenuous but long enough to be a challenge (there and back!) Tunnels being open made it more interesting and the views were wonderful
