High Peak Trail

The High Peak Trail is a 17-mile trail for walkers, cyclists and horse riders in the Peak District. Running from Dowlow, near Buxton, to High Peak Junction, Cromford, it follows the track bed of the former Cromford and High Peak Railway, which was completed in 1831 to carry minerals and goods between the Cromford Canal wharf at High Peak Junction and the Peak Forest Canal at Whaley Bridge. The High Peak Trail is now a national route of the National Cycle Network.

At Parsley Hay, about five miles southwest of Bakewell, the High Peak Trail is joined by the 13-mile Tissington Trail, another route of the National Cycle Network, which was formerly the railway branch line to Ashbourne.


The High Peak Trail (and part of the Tissington Trail) are also a designated part of the Pennine Bridleway, a 130-mile leisure route which starts at Middleton Top, near Cromford, and includes 73 miles through Derbyshire to the South Pennines. The Trail also forms part of the Midshires Way, a long-distance footpath and bridleway which runs for 225 miles through the Midlands from Bledlow to Stockport.
