A circular route of three former railways lines on the Nottinghamshire / Derbyshire border offers serene, pan-flat running before the route-ending foray into the site of the former Silverhill and Teversal collieries, and a truly stunning ascent to the ‘Testing for Gas’ sculpture that overlooks Silverhill Country Park. Silver Lining is the name and gold-plated the experience.
This hidden gem is near the village of Langwith, where you can run or walk on well surfaced limestone paths that meander through maturing plantations and wildflower meadows. Our wandering, contouring route takes in many of the community arts projects that comprise the ‘Art along the Way’ sculpture trail.
Lovely, varied and undulating 5km route on largely excellent paths and trails and delivering some rewarding views to boot. Excellent visitor centre facilities and things to do for SixPacker family and friends, whatever their age. A wonderful example of land reclamation and regeneration.
Our 10K SixPack route has it all. This route offers meandering trails within lovely woodland, shimmering lakeside vistas and even a step back into history along a disused railway line. A rather challenging hill rewards you with panoramic views across the lake and nature reserve. Oh, there’s also a couple of on- site cafés to visit too. As trail runs go, it’s no bother at all.
Witness a story of coal mining to conservation amidst Chesterfield’s largest park. Your trail exploration will take in woodlands, meadows and lakes and some rewarding views too. A lovely route fit for this Minesweeper challenge. We think you’ll dig it!
This delightful off-road, surfaced rail-trail route is part of the Five Pits Trail that follows the course of the once Great Central Railway. A gently undulating circular loop amidst north-eastern Derbyshire villages provides just the ticket!
