Phoenix Greenways (& Audio Trail)
Mountain bike (MTB) Off Road Cycling guide to the Phoenix Greenways that are converted from a network of former Railways to give a total over 20 miles of traffic free cycling routes. This is a collection of routes including Blackwell Trail Brierley Forest Park Five Pits Trail Silverhill Trail Silverhill Wood Teversal, Pleasley, Rowthorn & Skegby Trails to name some of the routes that form the Pheonix Greenways . All the trails are at some point joined along the route to another trail, As Far as I am aware the Phoenix Greenway is a new Brand name for 2011 for the collection of existing cycle and walking routes that it includes for this particular area in Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire making it an impressive collection of trails and considerable amount of distance within the linked trails.
