Long Causeway has long been one of our priority tracks. The 3.6km former packhorse route runs through one of the Peak District’s most iconic and sensitive places – Stanage Edge. It passes through internationally protected wildlife and geological areas, including a Special Area of Conservation, a Special Protection Area, a Site of Special Scientific Interest and the Dark Peak Nature Improvement Area – and has been ravaged by 4×4 drivers and trail bikes. We believe that closing it permanently to motor traffic in 2014 was the only way to ensure this important area is protected for the future.
