  • Twice I've been to the peaks and both times the weather has been against me and I've yet to climb Kinder downfall. Either way, we scrambled nearly all the way up the stream to the last 100m but the wa...  more »

  • The walk was a good challenge in a good way for my girlfriend and I. The weather on the plateau was really poor so we missed out on the views. Definitely prepare well but the walk is well worth the ch...  more »

  • Amazing hike with beautiful views. Have got a reservoir on the way with quite serene ways. Takes about 5-6 hours and can be rated as medium on difficulty level. Its a circular walk which starts and ends at car park. The distance will be around 7 miles. Amazing views from the top.
  • This is a tranquil place, there are areas that have black peat next to white quartz gravel and rock formations that when the mist descends, look like hooded figures. There are various plain wrecks which can be found but some are memorials and need to be treated with respect.
  • Fantastic location! Thanks to all volunteers and Park Rangers who maintain pathways and access... Great countryside... #GetOutsideMore
  • This is a fantastic flat topped peak that is absolutely amazing to walk up! The flat top is expansive and really good to explore! There are plenty of well worn paths so it is very difficult to get lost. Parking is easy and spacious. The walk up is pretty easy and good for kids to do as well as adults.
  • Brilliant part of the Peak District can be a challenging walk but worth the effort to take in the spectacular views.
