Nutbrook Trail (National Cycle Route 67) Derbyshire
Shipley Park, Heanor to Long Eaton. Part 'Rail Trail' & Part Canal tow path


Start of the Nutbrook Trail at Shipley Park Heanor, and a couple of picks of the first few miles of the trail tarmac section

This is a fairly local trail for me, and brought to my attention by a sustrans volunteer ranger who visited this website. It's an off road trail running from Heanor (Shipley Park visitors centre) to Long Eaton and for me it was a classic example of the local trail you never knew existed which turned out to be a nice hidden gem suitable for all ages of cyclists. Unfortunately I know nothing of it's history before it was a trail or how long the trail has been opened, although it is part of the National cycle route 67 but I would have a guess at around year 2000 give or take a year or so.

The Nutbrook Trail stretches 10 miles each way, it is a very easy route, perfect for the novice and young family members wanting to get a few miles under their belt, there are a few hills but nothing to worry about on the first half of the trail which is mostly tarmac, the second half is flat on hard packed canal tow path. The Trail starting from and running through Shipley Park in Heanor. I have to say that my wife and I really enjoyed the ride on this trail, plenty of things to look at along the way Walkers & cyclists can all use the route.
