About the trail

Riddled with byways and bridleways, the White Peak is a brilliant place to explore off-road. On the White Peak mountain biking route, you’ll cover a satisfying mix of dirt, grass and grit, with pacey descents and long trails beckoning you out across remote moors. Dip into the built trails at Lady Canning’s Plantation and take on root-riddled trails around Eyam, with plenty of places to stop and bask in the views and the sunlight in spots no vehicle could reach. Charting a looping path out of Bakewell, this is the ideal holiday for anyone eager to explore beyond tarmac roads.

White Peak

Experience superb singletrack and plummeting descents along the famous limestone trails of the Peak District’s White Peak with a cycling holiday along the White Peak mountain biking trail.

This self-guided mountain biking holiday loops out from Hathersage, charging between famous limestone edges and great Peak District villages, complete with great pubs. Clambering onto Shatton Moor, it takes in the dramatic and technical descents from Bradwell Edge and uses the Monsal Trail to sweep into Bakewell. Switchback descents and an easy cyclepath along the steam railway line lead the way to excellent singletrack through Manners Wood. Chatsworth House glitters ahead along a thin ribbon of bridleway down through wide open fields.

Past Longstone Moor and a plummet into Calver, the White Peak mountain biking holiday visits the spectacular edges of Baslow, Curbar and Froggatt. It makes sure to hit all the great trails around Totley, Blacka and Burbage moors, before approaching the purpose-built mountain biking trails of Lady Canning’s Plantation — an absolute blast for anyone still full of energy. The final descent leads back to Hathersage and the completion of this scenic, satisfying loop.
