We started this trail off from the Sportsman Pub - it was free parking outside on the road. We set off at 11am and progressed the route clockwise past the reservoir on our right. Gorgeous views of the reservoir and really enjoyed the climb to the top which followed the water flow. Walking boots required for the descent as it was very rocky and uneven. Took us 4 hours to complete & had a drink at The Sportman afterwards. Would definitely recommend this route for someone looking for a scenic walk with some challenging sections.

I lead a party of 19 up onto the ridge from Hayfield last Sunday (21st July). I know the area exceptionally well from my previous life (don’t ask!) and everyone had a fantastic time. The weather was overcast albeit light cloud, visibility excellent and just the right temperature for a trek over Kinderscout and Kinder Low. I would recommend this to any one whose reasonably fit since once you’re on the ridge it’s pretty flat! Word to the wise... check the weather forecast before you venture up there since there is no shelter from the wind and rain! It is perfectly safe so long as you don’t act daft and go too near to the edge in part. Other than that an excellent day out and a pint at the end in the Sportsman’s Inn.

great hike, challenging up to kinder scout but a nice route down. luckily we went on a dry day but i imagine it would be quite dangerous/slippy if raining. we went a bit of off piste from the main route but lots of options to take.

Brilliant walk and adventure for us, particularly the climb up. Hard work but very rewarding. Make sure you are reasonably fit/healthy before attempting this.

Overcast day with breakthroughs of sun throughout day. Fantastic loop and a brilliant scramble near beginning. Really enjoyable

Long distance with amazing views!

beautiful day and a great walk. . Excuse recording had battery saver on and it messes up your readings.

Great trail and challenging terrain in a simple loop, so really easy to navigate. Brilliant views on a clear day, and good for a scramble.

Wow. Gorgeous hike with spectacular views. Very windy. Take a shell and gloves for protection against wind chill below 15 degrees C.
