The Meanwood Valley Trail links Leeds city centre with countryside in the north. The route follows a wooded corridor rich in cultural and natural history. The trail takes you through ancient woodland and parkland, passing historic mill ponds and weirs along the way.

The route starts the statue of H.R. Marsden, close to the junction of Woodhouse Lane and Raglan Road, and ends at the Golden Acre Park pedestrian underpass, Leeds Road (A660) and can be run in either direction.

Terrain ranges from technical rocky tracks and mud to short sections of road and paved pathways. The route should be followed closely, as there are many opportunities to shorten the route by veering on to alternative paths.

A direct bus route (X84) links the start and end points to the trail.
