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.
