Use public transport to avoid the frustration of traffic jams and crowded car parks. The rail service from Derby to Matlock is regular and the stations at Cromford, Whatstandwell and Ambergate offer good access to the trail and canal. Buses are frequent along the A6.
The car parks at Cromford Wharf and High Peak Junction are signed from the A6 out of Cromford. Black Rocks and Middleton Top are signed from the Cromford to Wirksworth road (B5036).
