The Route

This is one high level adventure that will seriously test your endurance. We take in the most iconic summits the Peak District has to offer, as we traverse the impressively vast Edale Skyline. This is a true bucket-list challenge!

Starting from the picturesque Hope Valley village of Edale, we start with a tough climb to reach the plateau of Kinder Scout, famed for the historic mass trespass that led the way to today's public rights of way and access to so many beautiful parts of the UK. 
 
On the way we pass some of the most interesting rock formations you will ever see, including the Woolpacks, a massive group of fascinating natural gritstone formation sculptures.
 
We join the Pennine Way as we round the horseshoe towards the iron age settlement and summit of Mam Tor.
 
We then follow the entire length of the famous Great Ridge as we traverse Back Tor and Lose Hill with jaw dropping views below us on either side.
