We visited the trail for the first time- we just went for a wander on the first bit from Malin Bridge, the whole length is pretty long! Thought it was stunning even on a coldish day where the path was hard to find under a...More

Used to drop down to this valley, driving into work...could often see Seb Coe training here. Council have done a good job making walks here.

A lovely walk mostly in wooded area running along the river. Lots of Dams, fast flowing waters, stepping stones. Parking by road or saw one car park by a lake. Nice cafe, superb scones. Good play area for small children near the cafe.

This is a good walk on a nice day. The walk alongside the river is very pleasant and surfaces good. You get to see the sites of Sheffield's industrial past, and the cafe at the lower reaches is a bonus.

This is a very popular amenity, which can be joined at many places, and enables one to do anything from a brief, gentle stroll to a decent, more taxing ramble. The Rivelin Valley Cafe is excellent too: acting as an enjoyable, very reasonably priced reward...More

Beautiful trail. Great for dogs too. Just have to consider where you cross when starting at the top, as there are stepping stones which are not to everyone's liking perhaps or do able for all (ppl and pets). Specifically if more rain has been falling,...More

At the station, hop straight onto the tram for Malin Bridge (buy a return ticket on tram). Easy Walk from there.
