Grade of walk: Moderate
As part of your day out at Killhope there are woodland trails that can be enjoyed.
The shorter trail around the reservoir is a push chair friendly trail. There is an accessible hide to observe the wildlife including a colony of red squirrels.
The longer route takes in the wider workings and water courses. Another hide in the woods gives you another opportunity to observe wildlife. The trail brings you past the shallow shafts and 17th century thatch and then you come down through Hazely Hush, an 18thC form of open cast mining. Now Hazely Hush looks like a miniature natural gorge in the limestone. This trail will take approximatgely 1 hour.
During open times the Killhope trails are part of the paid attraction.
Route supplied by Killhope The North of England Lead Mining Museum.
