On leaving the Bakewell County Showground, you'll join the Monsal Trail heading along a former Midland railway line before dropping into the magnificent Monsal Dale. Ascending through Deep Dale, you'll head south west past the Village of Monyash before joining the Pennine Bridleway and heading South East  to join the High Peak Trail. The final stretch will take you South to Carsington Water and the finish line. Distance approx 25.5 miles.

It is a beautiful hike, taking in the rugged scenery of the Peak District and offering breathtaking views across the Peaks.
