Make the most of the sunshine while you can by getting out to explore the natural gems of Derbyshire.
If you’re pushed for time or not able to walk very far, just stroll down to your nearest park to see the autumnal colours.
Want to make a day of it? Head out into the Peak District to climb the hills or wander along traffic-free trails and take in the wonderful views.
1. Monsal Trail
Enjoy a 8.5-mile walk along a traffic-free route but watch out for cyclists who also have a right of way along the trail.
Take a ramble across the moors above Hathersage and you will be rewarded with spectacular views that stretchas far as the eye can see....perfect for taking in those rich colours of the season.

Castleton is surrounded by a wealth of lovely walks on which to soak up the beautiful sights of autumn. If you're feeling energetic, take a steep climb from the village and check out the ruins of the 11th century Peveril Castle.
