Teversal Trails (part of the Ashfield Trails Network)
- a circular route on former railway lines on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border

Since the final railway closure in 1978, the expansion of nature on the trails has come to support a mosaic of habitats including calcareous grassland communities. This grassland is among the few remaining areas of limestone grassland in Nottinghamshire and is of regional importance.
On a trip to Teversal Trails:
- observe the species present including tor grass, yellow oat grass, field scabious, hawkweed and quaking grass
- drop into the visitor centre for advice on routes and refreshments.
