25 Apr 2021 Spring

A perfect slowway. Easy walking through a beautiful valley. A cycle/walk track with a steam railway Peak Rail on one side and the river Derwent on the other. Main route avoids all steps, gates and stiles if you use the cycleway all the way to Darley Dales Station Road. Carparks at the Whitworth, Darley Dale and at the Matlock end. Cafes both ends. South and parallel to the cycle track paths meander along with the river and walkers can leave and return to the main track. If you don't mind a narrow bridge and some steps there is no need to leave the track when the cycle way does - just follow the river path.
