Mam Tor & the Great Ridge - Guided Walk

About

The walk starts out with a short but steady climb of about 100m (300ft) up to the top of the famous Mam Tor (or Shivering Mountain) at a height of 517m. From here we'll experience what has been described by a previous chair of the National Trust as "one of the top ten views in England".
We then follow along the Great Ridge towards Hollins Cross, which provides a great place to view the remains of the old Sheffield to Chapel en le Frith road which was lost to the landslips in 1979. We continue along the ridge to Lose Hill for another great viewpoint.
Leaving the ridge we drop down and follow another beautiful path back towards Mam Tor. We drop down further through a beautiful wood (with bluebells in spring) to join the route of the old road providing spectacular views of Mam Tor.
After returning to the cars there is the option to walk a little further for views of the amazing Winnats Pass.
The walk is mostly on good tracks and smaller footpaths and includes 3 fairly short but steep hills, each a climb of about 100m (300ft). At any time of year there could be some muddy sections. There is a fairly long descent towards the bottom of Mam Tor which is a little steep in places and can be a little slippery when wet so footwear with good grip is required.
All our events are approved as "Good to Go" Covid-secure by Visit England. If you'd like to discuss the walk or other options before booking please contact us. Thanks, Paul Smith, myGuidedWalks.
