Amazing views the whole way. Would definitely recommend going anti-clockwise, much more enjoyable. The top car park is free so keep going until you get to that one

A fantastic 21km loop through beautiful Derbyshire scenery, over peaks, through valleys and up and down hills.

Used this as a quick leg stretch for after we arrived at our caravan site. The initial ascent is steep!!! But it did the job and we all had a leg stretch and blew the cob webs away ahead of tomorrow! I had 2 dogs and had them both off lead until the last part which is on a road but there is still plenty of grass to make the descent safe. You can also make this route a lot longer!

Awesome trail, really spectacular views from the top of the gorge. Definitely a tough uphill walk over a rocky surface to start with. There’s shade on the way up and back down, but very little on top of the gorge. Plenty of ice cream shops in cheddar once you’re done (:

Some interesting little paths to break up the walk, particularly from the summit back down to Clapham. We also paid £1 each to take a path running parallel to part of the suggested route (after passing ingleborough cave) and it was actually really lovely and I suspect a tiny bit gentler. It took us bang on 5 hours with lunch at the top, a reasonable pace, and a stop for tea on a picnic bench from the cave cafe.

HikingGreat!

Wonderful route. A great amble next to the river, followed by an old railway track and through forestry, a steady climb to fire beacon hill and terrific views of Sidmouth. Plenty of places to stop and admire throughout. Park in Canaan car park . Follow the river on the right which brings you close to the start of the trail. £3 for 24hrs but now half price thanks to covid. Enjoy

Great walk but definitely a killer! We walked up one side of the Gorge then walked on the road side back to the car. I’d recommend wearing good walking shoes as it’s very rocky and you need a substantial amount of grip in some areas!!

Did this trail today in a clockwise direction. As previous poster has said, don’t follow the trail that’s stated next to the waterfall/stream as it’s very dangerous. Just cross the reservoir and follow that path. A lot easier Also wish we’d done anti clockwise now as others had suggested, quite tough on the way down. Lovely walk though and amazing views. Very busy around old man coniston but a lot quieter after that.

Fantastic walk. Rocky and challenging in some places, but well maintained and clearly sign posted. Took a diversion to go look at Black Rock, which was a nice quiet spot to stop for a while. Highly recommend this trail but might be tricky for young kids! Will definitely come back again.

It makes a nice change to the more popular route over Mam Tor and gives you great views of the ridge line. Its easy enough to add on Mam Tor to this route too. The paths are easy to follow. There are quite a few fields with sheep grazing, so dogs need to be on the lead. Plenty of parking in Castleton

After living in Exeter for so long me and my girlfriend decided to hit the trails of the gorge, we weren't quite prepared for the giant uphill, but after scaling it we were rewarded with some stunning views of the gorge and cheddar! We enjoyed the whole loop in-between the showers! Good footwear is advised :) Can't wait to try some of cheese and cider shops when they reopen!!

Went after a bit of rain and the walk up was pretty slippery but the views at the top are fantastic. Definitely recommend wearing hiking boots or other good shoes.

Great loop trail, took us about 3.5 hours at a slow pace. Not too steep but you still get stunning panoramic views once you’ve gained gradual hight. Long portion of it was along a gravel track. We came down through a stunning valley towards the end and it was just as picturesque as Winnats pass itself but much quieter. The rocks underfoot were a bit loose when walking down into the valley, would recommend good ankle support. It was a clear sunny day when we went and we hardly saw anyone on the trail. Wear a hat when sunny because most of the trail was exposed!

HikingNo shadeRocky

Great walk, started early 6am. Weather was clear skies all day, nice cool breeze to start and helped on the incline, no shade at all, we saw some amazing views and sights such as gaping gill, feet felt it at the end and a good all round hike, I would suggest if it’s a clear day to start early as walking this mid afternoon in 20 plus degrees would be hard.
