Audio trails


A guided walk on your smartphone

The Moors for the Future Partnership produced the first downloadable MP3 audio guides for countryside sites in the UK.

A series of 15 trails from across the Peak District National Park and further north into the South Pennines will take you on a self-guided tour of some of the finest walks in the area.

Download the audio trails onto your smartphone or mp3 player, along with a map of the route showing stopping points to listen to each track.
