Dog Walks In Buxton


There aren't any specifically marked dog walks in Buxton, but virtually anywhere is accessible as long as you follow the countryside code. Taking your dog out in the Peak District is restful and very relaxing. Be wary around livestock and always ensure your dog is on a short lead or under close control, this goes without saying. The moors around Buxton during bird breeding season again are out of bounds for dogs off their leads. But as long as your dog is carefully controlled then both dog and owner should still enjoy themselves in the wilds of the stunning landscape around Buxton town.

Dog walks in Buxton could mean following the family friendly trails which take place along the tracks of former railways, such as the High Peak Trail and Tissington Trail, which only start a few miles out of Buxton itself. You can follow the pedestrians, the prams and the cycles if you fancy an organised dog walk with all the family. The trails are very flat, making it very easy going, but if you want something more challenging, then the world is your oyster with the rest of the Peak District on your doorstep to explore.
