Monsal Trail

Monsal Head, standing high above the dale, affords the best viewpoint for admiring Monsal Dale. The great railway viaduct seen in this picture once carried trains to Buxton but after the line was closed it was taken over by the Peak Planning Board, and it now carries the Monsal Trail, from which the walker can overlook the dale. The many tunnels along the Trail are closed, but most are circumvented by paths.

Open: Every Day of the Year
