Trail is best route of under 30 miles

Have your say

The Monsal Trail in the Peak District has been voted the UK’s favourite National Cycle Network route under 30 miles.

The 8.5-mile trail - which runs along the former Midland Railway line to Coombs Road, Bakewell - topped the category in a poll to mark the network’s 20th anniversary. Most of the route was opened to the public in 1981. Four railway tunnels then became part the trail in 2011.
