Derbyshire Dales and the High Peak Trail

Derbyshire Dales and the High Peak Trail is a mountain bike route in The White Peak area of the Derbyshire Dales in the rolling hills and valleys of the Peak District. It is graded Moderate and is 26 miles long. 


The route travels in an anticlockwise direction from the High Peak Trail and takes in a good number of the Dales. As well as stunning scenery there some great descents and hard climbs. Keep an eye on the weather though, if it’s wet it’ll be slippery with mud and the famous White Peak limestone. There is also one section, mentioned in the text, which could flood when the River Wye is high. It hasn't been a problem for me so far though. The ride starts in Sparklow car park on the High Peak Trail, just off the A515, 6.5 miles south east of Buxton.
