Kinder Scout - Wednesday Walks

Open group guided walks on many Wednesdays throughout the summer, to raise money for

The Moors for the Future Partnership and the Peak District National Park Foundation

Kinder Scout guided walk

Kinder Scout is the highest point in the Dark Peak area of the  Peak District National Park.  There is no place quite like Kinder Scout!  Our themed walks allow you to explore the many historic landmarks, natural features and geological wonders of this iconic area. 

These walks are free but we ask that you donate to our charities Moors for the Future Partnership and
Peak District National Park Foundation.  Both of these charities are committed to protect and preserve this fragile upland environment for the habitat, wildlife and our enjoyment now and in the future.  Booking is essential and is limited to a party of five, plus the walk guide.

Please note all our walks involve walking on rough terrain that can be steep in places with rocky and boggy sessions.  Dogs are not permitted on our walks.  It is important that you bring good hill walking kit and a packed lunch.  Please download the full kit list below.
