The Gritstone Edges covers 24 miles of gritty Peak District landscape. It’s a challenging day but most of the climbing is over first thing on the pull up to Lost Lad. From there the views along the entire route spur you on with only a few modest climbs and a gradual descent to Baslow.
One of the best Kinder Scout walks, circumnavigating the whole of the Kinder Scout Plateau, a wild peat upland rimmed by gritstone edges. The Kinder Circuit is a long day’s outing along the edges, with wonderful views all the way. It can be started and finished at many access points.
This is a great solitary hike on the often boggy Combs Moss which lies above Chapel-en-le-Frith and Combs, with panoramic views that take in Cracken Edge, South Head and Kinder Scout.
