About the event

Join us on this testing circular hike!

Its one of Britain's 15 greatest circular walks and an excellent way to soak up all those Peak District views. Starting from Edale, it picks up the Pennine Way to climb Jacob’s Ladder, an old packhorse track, passing farmland, wooded cloughs and blanket bog being regenerated by the National Trust. Kinder Scout itself is a wild, weird world of peat gullies, rocky downfalls and gritstone rocks – there’s nothing up here but nature and the spirits of trespassers past. The return is via the Grindsbrook footpath, with views over the Vale of Edale.  

Distance: 9 miles approx.

Difficulty: Strenuous 

Total Ascent: 1,656feet

Meet up on the car park of the Red Lion Pub in Market Drayton, and then travel to the start point from Market Drayton, that way if anyone needs a lift those with cars may be able to assist? If you live more locally to the start point you can travel direct to the start point, but YOU MUST make us aware via a email message!

We leave the Red Lion at: 7.00am prompt.
