The coast-to-coast route from Southport to Hornsea is approximately 207 miles long. With the addition of the north / south route from Leeds to Chesterfield and a link up to York, the whole route is over 350 miles. Devised in 1989, the Trail officially opened in September 2001 following expenditure of £30m to ensure provision of a high quality route and regeneration of some previously derelict areas. Stretching from Southport to Hornsea and from Leeds to Chesterfield, the Trail passes through a wide range of urban and rural environments including national parks, industrial heritage areas, coastlines and city centres.
