Welcome

A national coast to coast route for recreation and transport – for walkers, cyclists and (in parts) horse riders

The Trans Pennine Trail

The Trans Pennine Trail (TPT) is an exciting route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders linking the North and Irish seas, passing through the Pennines, alongside rivers and canals and through some of the most historic towns and cities in the North of England.

The Trail from coast-to-coast between Southport and Hornsea is 215 miles (346km) long.

A north-south route connecting Leeds and Chesterfield, a spur to York and a spur to Kirkburton means there are approximately 370 miles (595km) of Trans Pennine Trail available to explore.

A great way to explore the Trail is through one of our excellent value printed maps available through our shop .

The Trans Pennine Trail is mapped and signed all the way, mainly traffic free and is surprisingly level considering the dramatic scenery along the way. Easy gradients and surfaced paths make many sections suitable for families, gentle exercise and people using wheelchairs and pushchairs. So whether on foot, horse or cycle; for a day or longer; alone with friends and family – the Trans Pennine Trail (TPT) can offer something for everyone.

If you see a problem out on the Trail please report direct to our National Office via email, phone or social media.

I was up at 4 am to take the dog out, so i was not on the trail, so a bit off topic. I walked up Old Mill Lane in Thurgoland,taking advantage of the street lights. When I got about halfway, I could see a light in the woods. This is on the other side of the Don River, as I got further up the lane the lights stop. I could then clearly see that the light was Christmas lights. Totally baffled as I know there are no houses, in that part of the woods. ... See MoreSee Less

For everyone that helped vote for the Cut Gate project - they won the public vote and secured £27,000 towards the repairs!Newsflash: the winners of the EOCA European Outdoor Conservation Association awards have just been announced and the winner in the Mountain category is…Cut Gate bridleway in the Peak District!!!!
