Don Valley Way

E Yorkshire, S Yorkshire

47 km / 29 miles  View Twitter Feed
The Don Valley Way follows the River Don from Doncaster to Sheffield. It's 29 miles long and the whole trail can be used by walkers, with approximately half of it suitable for cyclists.

The trail is part of a Heritage Lottery funded project celebrating the history and wildlife of the River Don. In the past the river played an important role in the industry of the area. The Don provided power and water to the many mills and factories along its banks and many of the buildings and structures associated with this industry can still be seen as you follow the trail.

The trail is easily accessible by train.

UPDATE May 2023: Route is currently blocked by building work in Rotherham between SK 425924 and SK 412922; local roads can be used as an alternative.
