About the event

A picturesque walk through the Derbyshire Dale of Dovedale, with a detour hiking up to the top of Thorpe Cloud where you have lovely views down the dale then along the Tissington Trail to complete the route.

From Thorpe, you set off for a lovely little hill with stunning views, then it’s back down and along Dovedale, passing via Lover’s Leap, Ilam Rock and the Dove Holes before reaching the village of Milldale. You can stop by the river for a break here, maybe visit the takeaway cafe.

Now it’s uphill and along past Shining Tor before reaching the Tissington Trail, the final section of this walk. It is the easiest part as you follow the trail all the way back to Thorpe, passing under various bridges and another cafe at Tissington on the way. A good end to the way as you don’t need to worry too much about navigating!

Facilities on the walk

There are no public toilets available at the start of the walk at Thorpe in Narlows car park; however there are toilets at Milldale and Tissington.

At Milldale there’s also a small cafe, open during peak times and at Tissington there’s a cafe as well. Alternatively, at the end of the walk there’s a pub, called the Old Dog but that’s been closed for a while, check to see if it’s reopening before planning to go.
