About the event

Walking along the Great Ridge from Lose Hill to Mam Tor is one of the best walks in the Peak District. It’s also a very popular walk but when you’re walking along the ridge with the valleys on either side, you’ll see why.

Our route begins from Castleton up to Lose Hill summit then along the Great Ridge, over Back Tor, then on to Hollins Cross and finally Mam Tor. As you walk along the ridge you can see the other Peak District hills in the area, including the highest point Kinder Scout, and then all the way to Win Hill. Looking down you can see the beautiful village of Castleton and on the other side, you’ll see the lovely village of Edale.
