Wednesday 18 August 2021 - Now fully booked
The aim of this guided walk is to view and walk amongst the Peak District colourful heather that is usually at its best this time of year. We will also explore and hopefully view a range of other plant life animals and birds so binoculars are essential!
We will leave Edale and ascend to the rocky tor of Ringing Roger where we can view areas of heather covered moorland on surrounding hills. We will visit an area where work is underway to preserve the moors from erosion by way of building dams and planting sphagnum moss. Our route takes us across the moor to observe plant life, then to Crookstone out moor and Mad Woman’s Stones, a gritstone outcrop. Our route then descends Nether Moor and returns to Edale via a valley path, or alternatively we can stay high on the plateau and return via Golden Clough.
The distance is about 9 km / 6 miles with a height gain of 370m / 1,213 ft.
Peak Walking Adventures reserve the right to change the walk if weather conditions etc do not allow us to access the hills.
