Really nice walk. Close to the river until the Thor Cave. Thor Cave is a really amazing plave to see, beautiful and stunning. Then a all part in the middle of fields surrounding by sheeps and cows. Really easy to do and acces. If you arrive by car, parking is arround 5£ the all day.

Very flat with a few good views and the tunnels are cool. The tunnels are very cold! Bring another layer if walking, it was cold just biking through. Walking would be super cold!

great views! very different throughout

Amazing walk! When we went the weather was amazing! Could see for miles, views were incredible. We even got sat and watch 4/5 paragliders from the top, which was amazing to view. Definitely can not wait for another sunny day to venture up there again!

The walk is moderately challenging and we did it with our small dog. There is steep paths at points and we had a rocky descent from Mam tor but it was not strenuous but could be challenging for some. Really enjoyed it and would recommend

It was lovely to see but it was raining and windy. Could not get up mount Tor as it was too dangerous. We will go back when it is dry and warm

Good trail. Busy with bikers and walkers.

Started in Castleton and went clockwise around the trail. The tors were challenging going up but nothing too difficult. Took just over 4hrs including lunch and taking in the wonderful views. My favourite trek so far!

I don't think I'd call this easy... I think the easy bit is navigating it... The hills are challenging though but it is beautiful

Great walk, lovely views, come here often with my dog and not far to Castleton for local ice cream

Really nice walk, but get there early if you wish to beat the crowds, arrived at the car park (£5 for the day) at 8am and no one was about. But when we returned 4 hours later (30 min coffee break) the car park was overflowing. Would definitely walk again.

Lovely scenic trail, done on the bike. Lovely stop just over half way at Hassop for coffee and cake. Will definitely do this again.

Nice views, worth the hike. However path is a bit confusing, going through private land (as per map) which makes it uncomfortable.

Lovely walk, great views, would definitely do it again in spring / summer.

This was a lot tougher than I expected as the previous reviews had said it was rated easy. There was about 2 foot of snow when I did it which made it more like a moderate/hard trail. It was really good and some great parts. Passing the castle and cave section was cool. I’d advise that you do it anti clockwise so that you finish at a heigh point.

Marched up this! Foggy at the time but when the sun came out the views were incredible
