Know Before You Go
A good starting point for this trek is in the parking lot at Millers Dale. Alternatively, to walk in the opposite direction, start at either Topley Pike (free) or Wyedale (pay and display) parking areas on the A6 following the Monsal Trail. Eventually, you are forced to descend down into the river close to the tunnel at Blackwell Head. The first set of stepping stones is not far away. Coordinates shown are for Wyedale parking lot. During winter months, the river flow through the gorge can become very fierce, proceed with caution.
