Erewash Valley Trail

43 km / 27 miles

Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire
The Erewash Valley Trail is a circular walking and cycling route which takes in over 27 miles of waterway and countryside on the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire border. There are many shortcuts and links across the trail which connect communities and provide shorter local loops and split the trail into smaller sections.

The Erewash Valley Trail takes in beautiful countryside, wildlife and waterways but it's never far from the towns and villages on the borders of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.

Once renowned for mining and lace mills, our area has inspired great names like author D.H Lawrence, designer Paul Smith, and actor Robert Lindsay. Cleaner waterways have seen a rebirth over recent years as otters and salmon return and regular sightings of bitterns and water voles.
