5 autumn pushchair walks in the Peak District

Little feet love stomping in autumn leaves – here are our favourite autumn paths in the Peak District, all with colour, crinkle and crunch aplenty and suitable for all-terrain pushchairs.

Ilam Park

A short walk that packs a lot into a mile or two. Theavenue of lime trees beside the Manifold River is beautiful at this time of year, while there are plenty of den-like trees for little ones to get filthy.

The hunting tower, Chatsworth

Chatsworth House

Have you ever been into the deep dark woods behind Chatsworth House? If not, your missing out.

The Lathkill river near Conkesbury Bridge

Lathkill Dale

Full of mists and mellow fruitfulness, the tree-lined ponds of Lathkill Dale are at their best in autumn and worth a visit, even if you can’t get very far with wheels.


Derwent River, Hathersage

Do check out the softly tumbling autumn colours beside our mighty river before it gets too muddy!


The Monsal Trail

Rammed-busy in the summer, this ever-popular cycling trail starts to quieten down a little in the autumn, making it suddenly a nice place to go for a walk again. Our favourite part is to start at Miller’s Dale and walk east.
