To Derwent MTB

Derwent reservoir is an impressive collection of reservoirs, with some equally impressive dams. This route takes in quite a number of the best trails in the Peaks. Its a challenging day, with very little tarmac and very little reprieve from the ups and downs of the peaks. Truly spectacular! There is a cafe open all year round at Fairbanks (by the main Derwent dam) that makes a great half way stop, or numerous pubs on route. You could always shorten this route by returning on the train from Bamford, Hope or Edale.
