1 Starting at the far end of the car park (furthest from the road) join the Monsal Trail continuing west away from the car park.
2 Just before going over the viaduct, take the right hand path (sign-posted for Chee Dale). Follow this path north as it meanders along the river. The path will cross a couple of small bridges and walkways before crossing over the river (and under the Monsal Trail).
3 Cross back over the river continue, crossing the large stone "stepping-stones" that run parallel to the river.
4 Eventually the path will begin to accend enabling you to rejoin the Monsal Trail. Simply follow this back over the various viaducts and through the tunnel, back to the car park.
