High Peak and Tissington Trails follow the old railway lines that used to criss-cross Peak District and are a great way to see the area and learn a little bit more about the local history. The 17-mile long High Peak Trail follows the trackbed 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. At Parsley Hay, about 5 miles southwest of Bakewell, the High Peak Trail is joined by the 13-mile Tissington Trail, which was formerly the railway branch line connecting Ashbourne to Buxton.

We will hire the bikes from parsley hay and cycle along the High Peak Trail to the beautiful Carsington Water. We will then leave the trail and cycle through the lovely woodlands on the shore of the lake, before grabbing a cup of tea and some ice cream at the Visitors Centre (about 16.5 miles in). We will then cycle across to Tissington and come back to Parsley Hay along the Tissington Trail. After returning the bikes, we’ll drive a short way to the Royal Oak pub in Hurdlow for a well-deserved snack and a pint.



I have a great whenever I go ten pin bowling with the Social Circle crew.
