OVERVIEW

A run with spectacular views across beautiful Monsal Dale in the Peak District. The route follows the course of the River Wye on the outward section, climbs steeply away and then returns via farm tracks. Finally you will cross the atmospheric Monsal viaduct before a short climb back home.

The viaduct was build in 1863 despite much protest at the time. The Peak section of the railway line closed in the late 1960's and in 1980 the track was bought by the National Park who converted it into an 8 and a half mile footpath called the Monsal Trail, linking Coombs Road viaduct, south east of Bakewell to Wyedale, east of Buxton.

This Route has been classed as Hard Refreshments at Start Toilets near Start This is one of our hillier Routes

Great run, very scenic. But be warned that the climb after Litton Mill is very tough,[and takes much longer than the gude suggests unless you have iron lungs!] and the final descent is very steep and slippery. Fell running shoes advised.
