For those who want a gentler stroll, or have a disability or young children, there are many trails that were once railway lines that are free of cars and reasonably flat, yet still offer great views. These include;
The High Peak Trail - running for 17 ½ miles from south of Dowlow near Buxton to the Cromford Canal.
The Manifold Track, from Waterhouses to Hulme End for 8 ¼ miles.
The Monsal Trail, from just south east of Bakewell to close to Buxton.
Sett Valley Trail, 2 ½ miles from Hayfield to New Mills.
Tissington Trail, 13 miles from near Ashbourne to Parsley Hay where it joins the High Peak Trail.
There are a number of other, more strenuous trials which cross the Peak District. The most famous of these is The 270 mile Pennine Way which begins at Edale in the northern Peak. The others include; the Limestone Trail from Rocester in Staffordshire Moorlands to Castleton; The Goyt Way is a 10 mile route following the Goyt Valley, and the Trans Pennine National Trail reaches coast to coast, passing through the Peak District at Broadbottom.
