These two trails are linked together and linked in the title of this review. Arguably the Tissington trail receives most publicity forming the lengthy trail from Ashbourne towards Buxton.

Great for dog walking and children to run along. The roundhouse at parsley hey is particularly interesting. You do have to be mindful of cycles coming up rapidly behind, sometimes they are rather fast. Lovely scenery and beautiful county.

This is very easy walking along a disused railway track. We veered off to visit the village of Tissington and enjoyed a lovely cuppa and excellent cakes in the cafe there.

Sorry, I don’t know for sure but you might like to check the hire centre. It’s at Parsley Hay. Just google it and it will give you all the details. It appears to hire what you want but best you check.
