Tissington and High Peak Trails near Monyash, Derbyshire.
Distance : 3.5 miles 2 hours Route: from parsley hey car park off the A515 up Tissington trail to Hartington then across fields to join High Peak trail
Facilities: 2 (count them) toilets on this short route. In Parsley Hey and Hartington Station car parks. Also picnic tables at both and snack kiosk at Parsley Hey.
Last walk of the year and it was a good choice. Much of this short walk was along easy trails (Tissington and High Peak) either through green and sheltered cuttings or embankments with wide open views.
The middle section is hard on the feet over rough fields past green tumuli but it’s worth the effort especially on such a cold day as today.
By the time we join the high peak trail we are warm and, for such a short walk, feel as though we’ve had some exercise.
