  • A expansive and flat topped range. Keep your GPS fully charged and your map dry. Easy to drift off path. Great fun. Epic views.
  • Lovely little hike that took about five hours including lunch and many pictures along the way. Stayed opposite of Jacob's ladder which seemed to be the road less travelled. We had a dry walk, but it would certainly be a mess even with a little bit of rain. Begins and ends at a lovely pub.
  • The surrounding area and views are wonderful, a great walk through the fields from Edale and up to Kinder Scout.
  • we spent a whole morning here walking. I didn't realise that it takes you on pennine way which was pretty cool. head all the way to the centre where there are cool rocks where you can take some great photos.
  • Great place to get away from it all and just relax in a peaceful and scenic part of the Dark Peak area of the Peak District.
