Road Directions

The highest points in the Peak District are the only places in England where you can still find Mountain Hares. During winter, when they change to their white winter coats, is the best time to view these wonderful animals.
Most people will never see them when walking in the hills but I have a 100% record of spotting them on these trips. It goes without saying that it's worth taking along a camera with a long lens or zoom and binoculars if you have them.
The walk starts from the Snake Pass road, between Glossop and Sheffield. After a gradual climb of around 200m (600ft) we reach a flattening from where we leave the Pennine Way path. I will navigate you across the complex moorland terrain to some of the best locations to see and photograph Mountain Hares in their natural habitat.
We will spend quite some time here observing the hares before heading back with a short detour to the site of a 1948 Superfortress plane crash.
