The Monsal Trail follows the path of the former Midland Railway from Blackwell Mill cottages to Coombs Viaduct, about 1km past the former Bakewell station – a distance of about 20km. For the most part the trail follows the path of the River Wye, which means it offers some spectacular scenery.
The Peak District National Park have recently spent £2.5m on re-opening the tunnels so it is possible to walk, cycle or horse-ride right the way along the trail.
Bakewell, Hassop and Monsal Head are the nearest stations from Baslow Hall. See the Monsal Trail Leaflet for more information.
Monsal Trail Cycle Hire is available at Hassop Station Cafe, Bookshop and Cycle Hire. Enjoy the traffic free Monsal Trail with their range of bicycles. We recommend this as a great day out in the beautiful Peak District! For those feeling less active, why not relax in the cafe or browse the book shop and gift area.
