The Trans Pennine Trail is effectively a coast to coast trail between Southport and Hornsea, a total of over 200 miles. However several trails have been joined up from Leeds, York and Chesterfield which adds a further 150 miles of countryside to explore.

Much of the Trans Pennine Trail is along disused railway tracks and broad bridleways which mean it's perfect for cyclists. However it is also a popular route for horse riders and walkers.

Some of the highlights along the route that passes through Derbyshire include Melandra Castle Roman Fort, The Longdendale Valley and the Woodhead Tunnels. The route also follows the Pennine Cycleway and the Pennine Bridleway in parts so you can decide whether to join these routes or keep to the main trail.

More about the trail and its exact route can be found on the website.
