AboutThe Trans Pennine Trail is a walking, cycling and horse-riding route across the North of England - it's the easiest way across the Pennines under your own steam.
In the Peak District the Trans Pennine Trail runs via Charlesworth and Hadfield before following the old railway line along the reservoir studded Longdendale Valley. The Trail crosses the high moorland and reaches its highest point at Windle Edge, before a long decent to Dunford Bridge and on to the attractive market town of Pennistone. Long traffic free sections are ideal for families with children. Route maps are available from our website of from Tourist Information Centres on the route.
The Trail from coast-to-coast between Southport and Hornsea is 215 miles (346Km) long. A north-south route connects Leeds and Chesterfield and a spur to York means there are approximately 350 miles (560 km) of Trans Pennine Trail available to explore.
