13 - Walk the Doncaster stretch of the Transpennine Trail


The Trans Pennine Trail is an exciting route for walkers, cyclists and horse riders linking the coastal towns of Southport in the West with Hornsea in the East. Some 25 miles (40 Km) of the trail passes through Doncaster from its western boundary at Bolton Upon Dearne to its northern boundary at Sykehouse. As you travel along the trail you will follow riverbanks, canal towpaths and disused railway lines, pass through woodland, farmland and villages. Look out for signs of our industrial past and keep your eyes open for the wildlife too.

PLEASE NOTE: Occasionally it is necessary to divert or temporarily close the Trans Pennine Trail to allow maintenance and development work to be carried out. Details of such diversions and closures in the Doncaster area can be found on our Rights of Way Temporary Closures page.
