Monsal Trail Circular Walk
A circular walk along the Monsal Trail visiting Miller's Dale, Monsal Dale and Monsal Head before returning via Taddington.
The route starts from the car park at the Miller's Dale Viaduct. Follow the trail east through the lovely Miller's Dale with views of the River Wye.
You continue past the village of Cressbrook to Monsal Head where you will pass the impressive Headstone Viaduct. The route then turns south, leaving the Monsal Trail, to pass through the woodland of Monsal Dale.
You then turn west, following country lanes to Taddington. The village has an interesting 14th century church while on Taddington Moor you can visit the Five Wells chambered tomb.
The route then heads north along Long Lane, passing Priestcliffe, before returning to the car park at Miller's Dale.
You can extend your walking in the area by continuing east along the Monsal Trail towards Bakewell.
Our Miller's Dale circular walk explores the shady wooded valleys and rushing rivers of Miller's Dale, Tideswell Dale and Monk's Dale.
