The route through Hirst Wood and Saltaire is a great family walk. It is mostly flat with plenty of things to do and see. You will take in the canal, river and parts of Saltaire. You can also stop off at the lovely Half Moon or Higher Ground cafés for some delicious coffee, hot chocolate or cakes.
At just over 3 kilometres (2 miles), the Hirst Wood and Saltaire walk is a perfect stroll for a Sunday afternoon. Calmly let your Sunday dinner go down and allow the kids to blow off some steam on the lovely play area. This Hirst Wood and Saltaire route is a great way to get some fresh air for the whole family.
As the leaves fall from the trees this autumn, the park and woods will be glowing a gorgeous amber. This peaceful walk is an excellent route regardless of the season.
Incorporate the Victorian village of Saltaire and you can visit Salts Mill. See the philanthropic work of Sir Titus Salt in this UNESCO World Heritage site and wander the gallery. If you’re feeling like getting your Christmas shopping done early you can visit the variety of independent shops within.
