Follow these sensible rules in our User Code to enjoy the Trans Pennine Trail and help others do the same.  

Everyone
  • If using a segregated section keep to your signed side of the Trail.  
  • Be aware of others around you and do not occupy the whole width of the path. Leave room for others to pass by easily, especially if you are using earphones as other users may appear without you hearing. 
  • Take extra care where the Trail crosses roads, near train lines and other busy areas.  
  • Do not leave litter anywhere except in a suitable bin. If no bins are available, take your litter home and dispose of it there. Reduce fire risk by safely disposing of lighters, matches or cigarette ends. 
  • E-scooters (unless part of an approved scheme using on-road sections only), motorbikes, modified e-bikes and other unauthorised vehicles are not allowed. If you see people using these on the Trail please report direct to the police via their online reporting methods. 
  • Trail users should give way to horse riders on bridleways. 
  • Be mindful of all users’ needs and abilities whilst on the Trail.  
Wheelers
  • In line with Government regulations, on pavement, footpath and bridleway sections of the Trail mobility scooters and powerchairs should not exceed 4mph.  
  • For safety reasons we would recommend turning your scooter off when stationary for a length of time. 
  • Keep a safe distance from other Trail users and make sure that your mobility scooter is under control particularly when approaching horses and dogs and, if necessary, stop to allow a horse to go by.
