The centre is approached by entering the Wye-Dale car park on the A6 (opposite the Topley Pike Quarry entrance), 3 miles south of Buxton towards Bakewell. The Monsal trail is a disused railway line closed in 1968 & recently converted in 2010-2011 into a new traffic free cycle track, allowing people to cycle from Blackwell Mill, Nr.Buxton to Bakewell. The eight & half mile trail follows the river Wye, & takes you through several newly opened lit tunnels, between steep gorges, surrounding limestone hills & across the spectacular Monsal Dale viaduct making this an exceptional cycling experience.
