Walking & Hiking
Peak District walks are some of the best in the country, and the Peak District National Park is one the UK’s most popular walking destinations. There are many walks in the Peak District which have traffic-free trails, so whether you’re looking for a gentle countryside stroll or a full-on hike, we have something to please everyone!
One of the best known walks in the Peak District is Kinder Scout. This is the highest point in the Peak District, and is famous for reasons others than its views and cloughs- it was also the chosen hike of the Mass Trespass of 1932. This peaceful protest was arguably the catalyst which resulted in a change in legislation allowing people to walk freely across mapped access land. It also contributed in the creation of the first National Park in 1951, here in the Peak District.
Another popular Peak District walk is Mam Tor, although less challenging than Kinder Scout the views are none less stunning. Easily accessible from Edale or Castleton, Mam Tor is sure to become one of your Peak District favourites.
There are endless places to walk in the Peak District; from relaxing strolls such as Dovedale or Tissington Trail to dedicated hikes, such as Win Hill or up Bamford Edge- walks in the Peak District National Parks are nothing if not diverse.
