Great cycle route with fabulous views across the dales. Peaceful but is quite open to the elements in places. Would recommend and would do it again

More Derbyshire walks that are well worth attempting, this one has several parking and stopping points if you don't fancy too many miles, the parts with the tunnels are great, well worth a planned walk and a snack at the end.

The Tissington Trail (4.5 miles) was relatively easy walking and provided some lovely views. Would definitely recommend.

Plenty of variety in the types of walks to want to do short or long and if you plan it carefully there are places to stop for food and drink.

After parking in the small car park at Ashbourne (£4.50 all day) we started the Tissington Trail heading to Parsley Hay. The first 8 miles is up hill (well gradual gradient) through some wonderful scenery. On reaching Parsley Hay a bacon sarnie was most welcome...More

The horse facilities at Hartington Station car park are superb. Very well thought out. Super off road riding so safe for the kids and ponies.

Hi, I would say better to do parsley hay to Ashbourne as this is downhill, however when it comes to the gradient it doesn't really matter as it isn't very challenging/noticeable until you get to the stone quarry.
