Eastern Moors’ new trail is a gem….
Took a run down the newly opened Barbrook Valley bridleway on Big Moor recently and it’s well worth seeking out. While you’re not going to get an adrenaline fix, it is a window onto a part of the Peak with which many mountain bikers will be unfamiliar. The views are great, the wildlife’s spectacular and the trail’s ideal for first timers and the less confident. It’s also a brilliant way of accessing the White Peak. Keep your eyes peeled and you may be lucky enough to see red deer.
