This walk features stunning views, streams, rock formations and an ancient packhorse route.
The Pennine Way National Trail is approximately 250 miles in length and starts in Edale, weaving its way up the backbone of England and finishing just over the Scottish border in Kirk Yetholm. Our walk leaves Edale and ascends at the side of the beautiful Grindsbrook stream (known in these parts as a clough). This involves some very easy scrambling which is not difficult. On reaching the Kinder Scout plateau, we turn left to traverse the edge. There is plenty to see on our way, including strange shaped rocky tors, boggy landscape and far reaching views of the surrounding countryside. We pick up the Pennine Way near Edale Rocks and follow it via Jacobs Ladder to return to Edale.
The distance is about 12km/ 7.5 miles with a height gain of 503 m / 1,650 ft.
