The Monsal Trail

The Monsal Trail is a traffic-free route for walkers, cyclists, horse riders and wheelchair users through some of the Peak District's most spectacular limestone dales.

The trail runs along the former Midland Railway line for 8.5 miles between Blackwell Mill, in Chee Dale and Coombs Road, at Bakewell.

Hassop Station Location

Most of the route was opened to the public in 1981, but four former railway tunnels had to remain closed due to safety reasons, with public footpaths taking people around them.

From 25 May 2011, the four railway tunnels - Headstone Tunnel, Cressbrook Tunnel, Litton Tunnel, Chee Tor Tunnel – will also open for trail users. Each tunnel is about 400 metres long and is lit during normal daylight hours.

Two shorter tunnels - Chee Tor No.2 and Rusher Cutting – already formed part of the Monsal Trail.

The public can now experience the full length of the former railway route at their own pace and see breathtaking views at places like Water-cum-Jolly Dale that have remained hidden since the railway closed in 1968.

Why not ride the trail on one of our hire bikes?
