Back Tor and Lose Hill

Back Tor and Lose Hill guided walk.  Peak District

2. Back Tor and Lose Hill, Peak District

Sunday 4 July 2021.  With Rachel Bolton or Richard Tower.


Our open group walks this week a little shorter than our normal walks, making them ideal for families with children, and giving ample opportunity to explore the many attractions in the area. 


We leave the village of Castleton and climb up to a wonderful little peak called Back Tor on the Great Ridge.  The views of Kinder Scout, Bleaklow and Win Hill are extensive and some of the best in the Peak District.  We complete the Great Ridge ascending Lose hill and return to Castleton via Hope Village and a path that follows the gentle stream of Peakshole Water. 


This is a hilly walk of about 7 miles/11 kilometres, with a total ascent of about 1,155 feet/352 metres.  One section of the ascent is steep.  


The cost to join this guided walk is £38 per person.  Please book and pay below.  You are booking with Rachel Bolton, and the walk on the day will be guided either by Rachel or by Richard Tower.
