I love it up here. You can get back to nature right here and enjoy the beautiful surroundings once at the top. Follow its trails through streams and tracks all the way to the top, sit and take on its beautiful views

Regularly walk over Kinder, bleak but beautiful on the top. Perfect mid week if you want to disappear into the peace of the hills. Check weather and be prepared with adequate skills and equipment.

We walked anti-clockwise picking up the Pennine Way at the back of Edale. The walk was moderate until we got to Jacobs Ladder and was then a bit challenging. Worth it though, as there were great views from the top; including Kinder Reservoir and we...More

To be honest it's not a challenging route most ways, theres a local centre with a map and depending on how long you have to spend you can pick a route
