The Silverhill Trail is one of the trails that make up the Phoenix Greenways and offers great opportunities for walking, cycling and horse riding.
Now you can use it to enjoy the splendid scenery of woodland, wetland and open countryside across rural Derbyshire.
The Trail connects the Five Pits Trail at Tibshelf Ponds, crosses the county boundary and joins the Pleasley Trail network at Teversal in Nottinghamshire.
What you might see
The trails are brilliant wildlife corridors linking countryside sites.
Grassland edges are great habitat for insects, which in turn attract small mammals and birds. Listen for birdsong as you travel the trail and see if you can see a kestrel soaring above looking for a tasty meal.
Through the spring and summer you’ll see wildflowers along the trail edges which also attract butterflies and dragonflies.
