Saturday 19 August and Saturday 21 October 2023
A guided challenge walk as part of a small group from Chinley Railway Station (near Hayfield) up Chinley Churn and across to Mam Tor and the Great Ridge via the Pennine Bridleway, finishing at Hope Station
This linear challenge walk is a day-long adventure linked by train – with a distance of 24km/14 miles, the route is ideal for those seeking a shorter challenge with mighty views along the way!
We leave our cars at Hope Railway Station and hop on a 15-minute train ride through the Vale of Edale alighting at Chinley.
Our walk ascends across some spectacular edges and small peaks including Chinley Churn, Cracken Edge and Mount Famine with magnificent views of the southwest edge of Kinder Scout and Kinder Low End. We then contour southeast along the moorland’s lower slopes following the lesser frequented Pennine Bridleway with its trickling streams, woods and the delightful Roych Clough.
We gradually climb the south side of Rushup Edge to Lord’s Seat ancient tumulus with gorgeous views of Edale below and the hill fort summit of Mam Tor ahead - at 517m this is our highest point of the day.
The walk continues along the magnificent Great Ridge which straddles Edale and the Hope Valley, passing over the rocky Back Tor and Lose Hill before descending to Hope and Hope Station where our day’s challenge ends.
The walk should take approximately 8 hours and is 24km/14 miles in length, with approximately 975 metres / 3198 feet of ascent. Length and ascent may vary slightly dependent upon best route for the group, and the weather on the day.
Participants must be fit and able to complete a full day out on the hills and be comfortable walking all day with small breaks. Please be aware that the terrain is hilly and boggy in places.
The cost to join this walk is £40 per person. Please book and pay below.
