This super-flat, meandering loop takes in several of the National Water Sports Centre’s facilities using little-known trail sections that will whet, but not wet, the appetite. The route out from West Bridgford skirts the Trent before returning along interesting trails on the south side of the rowing lake.
Situated on the reclaimed land of an old colliery site, our bespoke route packs a punch in terms of natural beauty, myriad trails and a spectacular view across the city. Amidst the numerous flat trails, one gentle ascent and one not so gentle! The city view will be the reward ahead of a finish point
Once home to one of the UK’s busiest coal mines, your start point is just around the corner from the Winding Engine House – a magnificent reminder of the location’s industrial heritage. A gentle trail soon gives way to a tough but rewarding ascent (yes, we are a bit mean!) but entering the Leen Valley section gives lakeside rewards before disused railway line hosts your return and eventually towards the finish point by the car park
This rewarding loop commences by the infamous 200 million-year-old Hemlock Stone and up into Stapleford Hills along The Robin Hood Way. You’ll soon ease into a nice rhythm along the disused Nottingham Canal before heading back up into the Bramcote Hills. Enjoy the rewarding views and a beautiful woodland trail ahead of a parkland finish.
Not quite a game of two halves but a figure of 8 loop comprising two distinct sections. Starting from the Weir Field Recreation Ground sports pavilion, the opening loop takes in the river Trent and Beeston Canal before heading west, to and into the stunning wildlife (and wildfowl) beauty of the Attenborough Nature Reserve. Homeward bound, we’ll keep you above water as you walk, jog or run and immerse yourself with enjoyment and, maybe, a well-earned refreshment within the marina complex.
Route starts and finishes very close to The Ferry Boat Inn. Our peaceful and tranquil route is surrounded by a rural landscape that is occasionally punctuated by reminders of city living. But forget the pylons and pile on the pace on pan-flat paths that lead you to the elevated trails around the Netherfield Lagoons Nature Reserve. From there, the serene and majestic River Trent is your companion to the finish and, perhaps, another watering hole!
