Porter Brook Trail Linear Park Route

Whitley Woods. ShareAlike 2.5

This route explores paths along several adjacent parks southeast of Sheffield, using the Porter Brook Trail as an anchor. Note it’s very hilly headed further south toward Porter Brook

Endcliffe Park. Gregory Deryckère

A good place to start is at the Sheffield Botanical Gardens. It’s ~1 mile of paths around these beautifully landscaped gardens. Then, continue to the Porter Brook Trail at Endcliffe Park, a Victorian-area park with lovely grounds and a lake. The path continues into Bingham Park, starting a solid climb, then through Whitley Woods and Forge Dam, ending at the trailhead at Fulwood Lane Car Park. It’s up to 4 miles one-way, climbing some 800 feet over the final 2.5 miles.

Add-Ons: Some additional trail in the parks. At the north end, add Crooks Valley Park/Ponderosa Park, ~1 mile north of the botanic garden. At the south end, a very large network of trails around Blacka Moor and adjacent preserves at the south end.

  • Up to 4.1 miles one-way
