Hartington is an ideal centre for outdoor activities. The walking from the village
down the valley of the River Dove is superb, with numerous options ranging from short easy walks to some lengthy circuits.
Locally, there are several former railway tracks which have been converted into tourist trails.
These are excellent for either walking or cycling, and are justifiably popular, especially at weekends.
National Cycle Network cycle route 54, which circles Central Derbyshire, goes through both Hartington and Biggin, and can be followed either
in its entirety or as part of a shorter local circuit.
