It is a very picturesque valley with its five reservoirs surrounded by high moorland. The Trail, which opened in May 1992, forms part of the longer Trans Pennine Trail, NCR 62, that runs from coast to coast across the UK.

Snake Pass4.25km from Torside Reservoir

Snake Pass is a mountain pass at an elevation of 510m above sea level, located between Manchester and Sheffield in Northern England. The pass is traversed by the A57 road.  Snake Pass has a poor accident record compared with roads in the UK generally, although more favorable compared with other roads in the area. It is regularly closed in winter because of snow and has seen several longer-term closures owing to subsidence following heavy rain.

Black Hill6.53km from Torside Reservoir

Black Hill is a fairly featureless grassy hill to the west of Malham Tarn which has just enough prominence to qualify for the list of Fours. The top of the hill is unmarked by cairn or trig point. The highest point seems to be a very slight but obvious grassy mound on the western side of the top. Black Hill has few of the eroded rocks which are such a feature of Kinder and Bleaklow.

Holme Moss6.63km from Torside Reservoir

Holme Moss is an iconic British hill climb used in many big races, such as the Tour of Britain and the now defunct Leeds Classic. It is also used in quite a few cyclo sportives, such as the Tour of the Peak, and also hill climbs.
