The 8½-mile (14km) Eskdale TRail is a fully way-marked route taking cyclists from Dalegarth Visitor Centre through Eskdale away from cars to the coast at Ravenglass. Suitable for all ages, there is only one section where some might decide to push rather than ride their bikes. The TRail guide, available from both Ravenglass gift shop and the Scafell Gift Shop at Dalegarth, includes a full description of the route, a comprehensive scale map, plus money off vouchers. To join the TRail, pre-book your bikes on the train, park your car at Ravenglass, purchase single journey tickets and cycle tickets to Dalegarth. The TRail delivers you back to the Railway car park.

Each card is laminated to suit all weather conditions. Ideal for use an alternative to the Eskdale TRail for pre-booked bikes on the trains.
