Walks and trails

Derbyshire is excellent walking territory with a huge variety of opportunities to explore our stunning countryside, historic towns and villages, canals, rivers and much more.

Cycling on the Five Pits Trail

We manage and maintain a wide range of specially designed walks and trails and they offer many opportunities for walking.
