Kinder Scout Adventure - Guided Walk

About

Probably one of the most interesting routes on Kinder Scout. Starting from Edale we walk through the lovely village of Edale and across fields before heading fairly steeply up towards Grindslow Knoll. From here the route we take is a stunning walk past many of Kinder's key features including the Wool Pack rocks and Pym Chair until we reach one of Kinder Scout's 3 trig points at Kinder Low.

We then continue on to the famous Kinder Downfall which changes its appearance depending on the weather from a lovely sunny lunch spot by a trickling stream to an almost perpetual waterfall on windy days when the water blows upwards as in the photo!

Next we walk into the notoriously complex "groughs and hags" that cover the plateau. This is an area of deep winding channels through the peat, the sides of which are often several metres high making navigation extremely difficult. The terrain will obviously be rough as we cross this area for approximately 2km and involve the crossing of several of these channels and working our way around some areas of bog. Having reached the main path once again we follow the southern edge back to Edale.

COVID-19 Guidance
All our events are approved as "Good to Go" Covid-secure by Visit England.
We plan to start operating again from 29th March in line with the schedule published by the government. Initially groups of up to 6 or two households will be able to exercise in the outdoors. We expect the most popular areas will be very busy during the first two weeks (Easter Holidays) so our activities will initially be selected to cover the quieter locations that provide those great wide open experiences and we will only be taking new bookings for private individuals/groups for these first two weeks.
From 12th April we will return to running our full range of activities including open group bookings that individuals can book on in addition to private/bespoke bookings.
From 17th May: Larger groups will be able to meet in the outdoors.

Our "Book with Confidence" reschedule/refund guarantee continues to be in place for bookings made up to 14th March (see below). After this date we will still maintain the additional flexibility to reschedule your booking at any time if needed as a result of COVID-19 restrictions.

If you'd like to discuss options before booking please contact us. Thanks, Paul Smith, myGuidedWalks.

### Itinerary
The walk is partly on good footpaths but partly on very rough pathless terrain and includes one fairly steep ascent of about 350m/1150ft. At any time of year there are likely to be some muddy sections and the crossing of the plateau will almost certainly encounter areas of peat bogs and water. You need be reasonably physically fit and have some experience in walking in rough terrain. Walking boots providing good ankle protection are definitely required and gaiters highly recommended.

For any booking you are able to reschedule for up to 12 months or obtain a full refund (minus booking or payment processing fees) if your booking cannot take place as a result of COVID-19 restrictions.

As a small company and not in receipt of any government support rescheduling rather than cancelling is a big help to us.
