Ashford in the Water and Monsal Dale

Distance: 6 miles
Difficulty: Easy

Begin your walk in Ashford in the Water, a small village on the River Wye, known for quarrying Ashford Black Marble. Climb uphill as you leave the village, following the ridgetop through fields towards Monsal Head. Here the path winds steeply down to the river and the old railway viaduct, one of the most photographed spots in Derbyshire. After crossing the river, the walk continues through beautiful countryside and pretty woodland trails back to Ashford in the Water.

Dovedale Walk

Distance: 6.8 miles 
Difficulty: Moderate

Discover the most famous of the Peak District’s dales on this circular walk of Dovedale. Walk from the lower end of the dale to the tiny hamlet of Milldale, following the steep-sided ravine and heading over the popular stepping stone crossing the River Dove. The more challenging return half of the hike crosses Viators Bridge and climbs to the summit of Bailey Hill, before descending to Nabs Dale. Continue through the woods to Dove Holes, then ascend gradually back over Dovedale and the Tissington Spires through Sharplow Dale. Arriving at Lover’s Leap, follow the path back to the stepping stones and your start point.

Five Dales Walk

Distance: 6.5 miles
Difficulty: Moderate

This circular walk explores the five dales of Tansley, Cressbrook, Water-cum-jolly, Miller and Tideswell, each quite different in character. From the attractive village of Tideswell, head east to Litton village, then head downhill into Tansley Dale where you’ll walk along the bottom of the dale to where it meets Cressbrook Dale. Follow a climbing path, offering superb views, then downhill through woodland towards Cressbrook Mill. Continue through the wooded valley of Water-cum-jolly Dale and Miller Dale, then join the Monsal Trail. Admire the impressive views of the surrounding countryside then drop down to a section of the disused railway, following the path back to Tideswell Dale.
