Buxton is surrounded by rolling hills, sweeping moorlands, deep valleys, dales, bridleways and green lanes. Venture deep into the Peak District National Park or soak up the atmosphere of this wonderful spa town and take our heritage trail or another of the many town walks available.
If you are visiting Buxton and have time for just one walk, an excellent choice would be the 10 mile “Ring of Trees”. This is a circular walk around Buxton, passing through many of the woodlands around the Town. The route can be downloaded from the Buxton Civic Association Website.
