did this walk from the official start by Woodhouse Moor up to Golden Acre Park. It should have been 7 miles but a helpful group sent me the wrong way in an unsigned section which meant, having retraced my steps, it was nearer to 9!...More

I live around the corner and usually walk along the trail a few times a week. It's well maintained and there's no litter. Lovely walk.

A huge variation of different areas are hidden into this park, with rivers and streams and a deeper wooded area called the Hollies accessible from here (which has tennis courts free to play). Mystical wooded areas to chill out in.

I love Meanwood Valley trail. It's not as busy as Golden Acre or Roundhay so it's a far more relaxing walk. You can make it as long or as short as you like and the park is lovely for kids.

Hi does anybody now where I can get written printable instructions for this as my printer cant fit the leaflet onto paper big enough to read! I'm lifelong Leeds Loiner & know all the areas well, but would feel better if I had a map or instruction.
