Welcome to the Trans Pennine Trail
A national coast to coast route for recreation and transport – for walkers, cyclists and (in parts) horse riders
Support the Trans Pennine Trail
The 370-mile Trans Pennine Trail is maintained by a consortium of 27 local authorities across the North of England. They also support the National TPT Office in Barnsley.
Not all the costs of maintaining and developing the Trail can be found by the local authorities, however, especially as they come under increasing financial pressure. The Friends of the Trans Pennine Trail is a registered charity which supports the Trail in practical ways.
