Kinder Scout Half Day Walks

Kinder Scout  Walk

Half Day Walk. Kinder Scout

Saturday 25 July - Fully booked

Sunday 26 July - Places available

 

These two half day walks would be suitable for walkers who do not have the whole day available, or have just started to get into walking and want to experience something more than a walk in their local area.  Perfect to build on from your local Lockdown walks!  You will be joining a small group of no more than four people in total, plus your friendly, professional guide.

 

The walks are also suitable to join us for the whole day with a break for lunch in the middle, so why not book for both!  

 

Morning - Kinder Scout (Grindslow Knoll)

Meet 9:00am to be ready to set off at 9:30am

 

Starting from Edale, we gradually ascend Kinder Scout via the beautiful Grindsbrook Clough which carves a stunning route into the Kinder plateau.  At the head of the clough we explore the edge of the Kinder plateau and the many strange rock shapes and crags.  Grindslow knoll is a wonderful place to view the area and also the Great Ridge above Castleton.  We return to Edale via rocky paths and green pastures. 

 

This walk is about 4.5 miles (7km) with approx 1,160 feet (350 Metres) of ascent on paths that are rough and stony, and can be steep in places. 

 

Afternoon - Kinder Scout (Golden Clough and Ringing Roger)

Meet 1:15pm to be ready to set off at 1:30pm

 

This walk is ideal as a first visit to the area.  We leave Edale via the old route of the Pennine Way and turn off the route to follow Golden Clough up to Nether Tor and the Kinder Plateau.  Here we can view close at hand the amazing boggy moorland landscape of this area.  We remain on the edge of the plateau to visit the rocky top of Ringing Rodger before returning to Edale via a newly constructed path.  

 

This walk is about 4 miles (6.5km ) with approximately 1145ft (349metres) of ascent. 

 

 

The cost to join these walks is £22 for one walk (morning or afternoon), or £38 for both walks.  Please book and pay below, choosing your preferred option from the drop-down box.  You are booking with Rachel Bolton who will guide the walk on the day.

 

Kinder Scout Half Day Guided Walk. Sunday 26 July

£22.00

  • Just one place left


Meeting place

The meeting place is next to the ticket machines in the main public car park in the Vale of Edale.  Post Code S33 7ZP.  This is the car park next to the village hall and public toilets (NOT the station car park which is only for rail users).  The car park does get busy at weekends, so if you book only for the afternoon walk and are arriving mid-day, please allow plenty of time because you might need to wait for a car parking place to become available.

 

The car park is a 'pay & display' and costs £4 for four hours or £6 for the day.  The ticket machine might only take coins.
