Very fun trail to follow. Definitely recommend to go anti-clockwise.

Great walk, informative too! Do able for all the family, just watch out for the off roaders when you go down the bumpy track after the sign posts!

Really good walk with some great views from the top of Higger Tor . Ideal for walking the dog and not too challenging.

did it again but the other way in prep for machu pitchu

5 star review although we did not (unintentionally) stick to the planned route at all! After not downloading the maps and loosing all signal we knew the general direction, it started off as a beautiful walk, looking back our first ‘off piste’ route took us walking directly up a stream, clambering over rocks, plenty of other people were doing it too and it was great fun, we were just concerned on the ranking of moderate! After about 2 hours of walking we gained signal and realised from our lunch stop, a great view from great heights, we’d set off in the wrong direction and were closer to the start point than the path we intended to go on, we retraced our steps and carried back on the trail, we decided to ‘cut our walk short’ and skipped kinder scout, taking a path straight across the loop to Jacobs ladder. The entire walk including the walk to the charity car park in edale was 17km. The views were beautiful, we’ll definitely be back with either maps downloaded or an old fashioned printed map to make our way around. Enjoy! (Edale charity car park was £5 donation for all day, and the ramblers inn was a great stop off on the walk back)

Beautiful but dogs are not allowed off the lead unfortunately and in peak time the trail is super busy. Sadly we didn’t enjoy it. Maybe next time.

lovely walk lovely views u can make it as hard or as easy as u like with the different paths

This is an amazing hike but be prepared to walk over some rocky paths.

A great family walk. Great views with a small lake to walk round

We took this trail anti-clockwise which is probably the way I would recommend. We started in Edale at the train station and it begins with a steady climb into a scramble at the end of the ascent to the moors up the river bed. On the top, the moors are easy as there is a clear path at first, until the right turn toward kinder scout. There are no paths after this and we picked up another couple doing the same route but we’re hopelessly lost. I had to resort to compass and just cut across the moors when I found I had also been heading in the wrong direction. The moors are hard, deep drops to boggy bottoms then short climbs to get out of the stream beds. We were pleased to finally reach the Pennie Way. The rest of the route was easy from there although we were exhausted from the cross country detour. I recommend this route, but be prepared for the moors. A map and compass here is essential. It is possible to cut the moors out I saw on the map but this does shorten the route and make it a bit easier. All in all though I thoroughly enjoyed the walk.

Perfect easy walk to Sunday lunch pub in Birchester. Rocks and bouldering opportunities half way round.

Went clockwise around the trail, starting off quite easy from Edale up to the bottom of Jacobs ladder. A long incline to the top where we were met with some blistery showers before getting lost in the boggy moors for quite a chunk of the trail. Finally finding the path that lead us scrambling down rocks to get to the bottom. Ending the trek back in Edale for a well deserved shandy. All in all a beautiful trek and the most challenging on yet!

A fantastic walk taking in the hills, a river walk and through the woods. I would recommend changing the route slightly so you can walk more of the return leg along the river rather than the road

A great walk for all the family. This is our go to if we haven’t planned anything else.

I took a ‘back’ way to Hope from Castleton to avoid the main road, passing the cement works. Through Hope village and up Lose Hill and on to Hollins Cross and Mam Tor. Then down via Winnats Pass. Then rather than use the road to get to Castleton I veered right up the hill towards Peveril Castle and then down Cave Dale back into Castleton village.

Nice 16km circular walk starting and ending at Edale. Elapsed time was 4 hours, I rushed a bit as I only had change for 4 hours parking at the NT car park in Edale, otherwise I would have taken it a bit more leisurely. I would also avoid the short detour over the moors, not really worth it, I was lucky it was dry, I suggest to stick to the main paths.

Beautiful day for it!

Beautiful scenes throughout the entire hike. However I would definitely rate this as a hard walk, really challenging all of the way through.

lovely walk but very rocky to get to top need good legs to climb up

Easy trail to a beautiful waterfall, lots of smaller waterfalls on the route, some rocky sections but nothing to hard

lovely walk!! V boggy in places..wear wellies or take spare socks

absolutely BEAUTIFUL didn't do the full route as of yet we get further and further each time, gorgeous views, friendly people no matter the weather an amazing hike

Really great hike. I did it anti-clockwise and started from the Ashopton viaduct. The northern section of this hike is very hard to follow as there's no existing path.
