Salford Trail Opening 2017 Salford Trail Opening 2017

Explore the heritage, countryside and rural areas of Salford with a series of ten walks.

The Salford Trail is a new, long distance walk of about 50 miles/80 kilometres and entirely within the boundaries of the City of Salford. The route is varied, going through rural areas and green spaces, with a little road walking in between. Starting from the cityscape of Salford Quays, the Trail passes beside rivers and canals, through country parks, fields, woods and moss lands. It uses footpaths, tracks and disused railway lines known as 'loop lines'. The Trail circles around to pass through Kersal, Agecroft, Walkden, Boothstown and Worsley before heading off to Chat Moss. After crossing this vast landscape, the Trail returns to Salford Quays from the historic Barton swing bridge and aqueduct.

The Trail has been divided into sections, each accessible by public transport. There is a leaflet for each section describing the route and giving the transport options.

Peel Park to Kersal but please note: Peel Park is being refurbished and there is no public access. The park is expected to open again maybe in October 2017. It is possible to bypass the park and walk along the riverside instead. In addition, the trail is closed at Cromwell Road bridge due to work on the new flood defences. It is scheduled to open maybe in November 2017. There is a diversion in place.
