This is another nice run in the Sheffield Round area south of town. Explore 300 acres of lovely trails in Ecclesall Woods, a network of signed footpaths through deciduous woodland and along pretty streams. Particularly lovely in the spring with the blooming bluebells. A loop of the trails is 3-4 miles.
