This historical walk with stunning views starts in the village of Hayfield. We follow the route of the famous Mass Trespass which, in 1932, saw 500 walkers trespass onto private land to secure access rights to open country, for all to enjoy. The Trespass helped the establishment of the Peak District National Park in 1951, the UK's first national park.
Why not make a weekend of it?
March Walk: Join our Bleaklow and the Superfortress walk on Sunday 19 March.
On this walk, we ascend via the famous Snake Path and up William Clough. The route gets steeper as we ascend onto Kinder Edge which we follow to one of best landmarks on the highest plateau in Derbyshire - Kinder Downfall. Here we can watch the water tumbling over a series of rock steps to the valley below; if it’s windy we'll be treated to an amazing display as waterfall spray is tossed backwards into the air like a horse's tail! We continue to follow the plateau, reaching the summit cairn at Kinder Low (633 m / 2077 ft), before descending to Hayfield via Edale's medieval cross.
There's a significant climb onto the plateau but we'll take breaks and share the history as we climb - it's so well worth it for the views! The distance is about 15 km / 9.5 miles with a height gain of 534 m / 1,800ft.

"There were hundreds of young men and women, lads and girls, in their picturesque rambling gear: shorts of every length and colour, flannels and breeches, even overalls, vivid colours and drab khaki…multi-colored sweaters and pullovers, army packs and rucksacks of every size and shape." Benny Rothman, in 1982, recalls the moment he spoke to ramblers before the Mass Trespass. Find out more here

Joining the walk by train? Provided we’ve got enough spaces in our vehicles, we can pick you up and return you to Chinley train station which is close by - just let us know when you book. We don't charge for this as we are keen to promote use of public transport and help reduce traffic in the Peak District National Park.
