This route follows the Castleford Greenway and the Trans Pennine Trail from Castleford to Wakefield in Yorkshire.
It's a nice surfaced path running along the old Methley railway line and National Cycle Route 67. As such it is suitable for both cyclists and walkers.
The route starts at Methley Junction in Castleford and heads west along the disused railway line towards Stanley. Near here you pick up a section of the Trans Pennine Trail and follow it south along the Aire and Calder Navigation Canal.
There are other sections of the greenway branching off to the south and east from Methley Junction in Castleford. See the map below for more details.
To continue your cycling in the area you could pick up the popular Wakefield Wheel. The 38 mile circular cycle route explores the parks, countryside and villages surrounding the town.
