Singletrack in New Piece Wood before the descent into Chatsworth

Singletrack, Steam, Deer & Northshore: Chatsworth, Rowsley & Northwood MTB Route

Here’s a short mountain bike route to try out that takes in the splendour of Chatsworth, has singletrack through woodland, passes Peak Rail and even has some new “Northshore”.

We started at the new free car park just off Station Close, Rowsley at the end of the new cycle route that goes from Rowsley to Churchtown and saves getting run over on the A6.

It can get sloppy in the woods so we only tend to ride this when it’s been dry a while or when its frosty.
There are also lots of options to extend the route should you want to clock up some extra miles.
Have fun!
