Walks Derbyshire is prime walking country and the more relaxed pace allows a greater appreciation of the region's superb scenery. There are hundreds of miles of way marked paths and also several traffic free routes along former railway lines (ideal for pushchairs, wheelchairs and cycles) such as the Manifold Valley Track, the Tissington Trail, High peak Trail and Carsington Water.

To the south, new traffic free paths include the Trent Valley Greenway and the Mickleover to Eggington Trail. There are more to the west with the popular Gritstone Trail, which takes in parts of Teggs Nose Country Park, Wildboarclough, Macclesfeild forest and Kerridge hills and gives superb views over the Cheshire plain towards North Wales.For the more energetic walker there are longer trail walks such as the The Derwent Valley Heritage Way, Limestone Way and the Staffordshire Way.

Or you could just stroll across the road and explore the Shining Cliff Woods. Shining Cliff Woods is an ancient woodland. It was part of a Royal Hunting Forest called Duffield Frith owned by the de Ferrers family of Duffield Castle. In 1690 the wood came into ownership of the Hurt family of Alderwasley Hall and remained with them until several years after world war 1. The wood is now a Site of Special Scientific Interest due to the huge variety of plants and animals found there, the Forest Commission and The Grith Pioneers manage the woods know and are happy for people to walk the many paths as long as you don't wander of them.
