High Peak Trail
The High Peak trail is the longest of the three trails in the local area spanning approximately 17.5 miles between High Peak Junction, (near Cromford) and Dowlow (just outside of Buxton). As with the Tissington and Monsal trail, the High Peak trail is a traffic-free trail suitable for walkers, cyclists and horse riders. It passes through some of Derbyshire’s finest countryside. Cycle hire is available from Middleton Top Cycle Hire.
