Trails

Banner-Landing-Visiting-Page.jpg

There are four distinct recreational trails, all of which were former railway lines, acquired by the Authority in the late 1970s, 1980s and in the case of the Thornhill Trail, early 1990s. We saw the potential of these disused railway lines, to provide excellent recreational routes through beautiful countryside, and for these to be suitable for all. In total we own and manages 34 miles of trail.
