Beginning from Miller's Dale car park this ride is approximately 8 miles long. Setting out along the Monsal Trail taking in tunnels and the iconic viaduct the route then takes to Bridleways and green lanes creating a circular and very scenic route. The majority of this ride is on tracks with a mixture of surfaces but there are some opportunities to have a canter if all riders are happy to do so. Most of this route is off road but a short section along a B classification road is necessary to connect back to the parking location.

The Monsal Trail is a multi user trail so cyclists and walkers with dogs are likely to be encountered.
Sections of the route are steep (both up and down) and quite rocky so a relatively fit horse and balanced rider will be needed.
There are often cows in fields adjacent to this route and it may be necessary to pass through pasture where they are grazing.
