The Salford Trail
In Conjuntion with Salford City Council and Transport for Greater Manchester
Offically opened by Stuart Maconie on May 30th 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.
