The Pennine Bridleway is a new 350 mile long National Trail in the north of England and the first purpose-built long distance bridleway for walkers, cycling and horse riders. The route offers a variety of walking through north of England. The route is well marked and largely off road which follows an interesting mix of old pack horse routes and drove roads linked with newly created stretches of bridleway. The trail takes in some of the best scenery of the North of England and passes through the Peak District, Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland National Parks. The official start for the trail is old Hartington Station. Please note not all of the Bridleway has been finished yet but the route can still be followed.
