Description
The Route

Our walk leaves Edale Village and ascends steeply up to Ringing Roger, an extraordinary rock formation typical of the Dark Peak District’s edges.  An easy walk continues along the escarpment’s edge to the summit of Grindsbrook Knoll, before heading towards the Peak District’s highest trig point at Kinder Low (2076ft/633m).  There is plenty to see on our way, including strange-shaped rocky tors with far reaching views of the Edale Valley below. We pick up the famous Pennine Way near Edale Rocks, before crossing over high moorland to the other side of the valley.  Here we follow Rushop Edge – a beautiful grassy ridge with great views back towards Kinder Scout.  Our final summit is Mam Tor, the site of an ancient hill fort, before gradually descending via Edale’s Great Ridge back to our starting point.

Key Features
  • The walk start is next to Edale Station with direct trains from Manchester and Sheffield.
  • With plenty of Escape Routes back to Edale, this route can easily be shortened in bad weather, or if members of the party are struggling.  It’s an ideal choice for new challenge walkers or for teams with mixed experience – there are plenty of choices along the route, so everyone can get enjoyment out of the day

Respect, Protect and Enjoy!

We all want to respect, protect and enjoy the fragile upland environments where we walk, so that they can be enjoyed by generations to come.  Following The Countryside Code really helps…

Respect:
  • Be considerate to those living in, working in and enjoying the countryside
  • Leave gates and property as you find them
  • Do not block access to gateways or driveways when parking
  • Be nice, say hello, share the space
  • Follow local signs and keep to marked paths unless wider access is available
Protect:
  • Take your litter home – leave no trace of your visit
  • Do not light fires and only have BBQs where signs say you can
  • Always keep dogs under control and in sight
  • Dog poo – bag it and bin it – any public waste bin will do
  • Care for nature – do not cause damage or disturbance
Enjoy:
  • Check your route and local conditions
  • Plan your adventure – know what to expect and what you can do
  • Enjoy your visit, have fun, make a memory
