    Route Description for Chee Dale Walk

    The Chee Dale Walk is a beautifully scenic route in Derbyshire that will take you through some of the charming farmland terrain that can be found within Peak District National Park. Although most of the trails here are well-maintained, the route does cut across farmland in some stretches. Make sure to wear proper walking footwear for the journey. Additionally, if you are travelling with any dogs, be sure to keep them on a lead as there are free-roaming livestock in the area.

    Setting out from the picturesque valley of Miller’s Dale, head east along the trail as it crosses over the beautifully constructed viaduct and follows the Monsal Trail for a short stretch. Head right at the first junction and follow the path as it cuts across the farmland to the southwest and passes by Priestcliffe. Make your way across the A6 and climb up Taddington Moor to pass through Chelmorton.

    Reaching the southwest corner of the route, head north along the trail to descend into Deep Dale, making your way through the rugged landscape until you meet up with the winding bands of the River Wye. From here, head east and enjoy the waterside atmosphere as you follow the flowing river through the dale and back to the starting point of the walk.
