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

Trail started well but following the loop anti-clockwise from the start it wasn’t long before, at the top of Soles Wood, the path cut across a field full of very jittery cattle. These days I’m afraid I don’t trust cattle and am far warier of them then I used to be. In any event with bullocks skittering about just the other side of the gate I decided it wasn’t worth the risk and turned back.

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)

lovely views from the top

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.

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.

Fantastic views and a decent hike, few steep hills but was enough places to stop and rest. Absolutely idyllic!

amazing views ♥️ my favourite place.

I absolutely loved this hike, and would 100% recommend. Can't wait to do it again. We had really great conditions when we hiked this - sunny, warm (20C), and during a dry spell in the springtime. I would recommend bringing suncream as you are exposed to the sun on most of this walk. It took me about 3.5 hours, this is with multiple pauses to take photos and about a 15 mins lunch break midway through the hike. I'd say I am moderately fit and completed it in that time. Weather was perfect, but it got windy on top of Shutlinsloe, so I can see that being temperamental on rainy days. I love the variety of terrain that you get in this walk - from walking up steeper hills, through forests, alongside reservoirs and even through cattle and sheep fields. You do also have to walk on a quiet road on a couple of parts, but we barely saw any cars so it didn't disturb us, but do keep this in mind. Would recommend good hiking shoes to complete this, and comfortable fitness clothes. I did this hike with my working cocker spaniel dog and she was able to easily complete the whole walk, but we did have to keep her on lead a few times i.e. through sheep fields, areas of nesting birds, walking on road. Mind you, she still had lots of opportunities to run off lead i.e. through forest and around Tegg's Nose, so she definitely got exercised. Just a word of caution, there were several styls which should could go through on her own so I did have to pick her up and help her over these. There were several opportunities throughout the walk where she was able to take a drink from a stream or cool off in a creek which was super helpful and ensured she was staying cool and hydrated. The parking at Tegg's Nose was about £3 for 3+ hours which is what you will need for this hike, and I loved that there was a lovely little cafe there, which I visited after the walk. Staff were lovely and food was great. Such a lovely hike, and I can't wait to do it again! Overall fab hike I would recommend for anyone to do!

Got to see lots of animals but had to walk through a muddy poop filled cow path that was impossible to avoid. Only take this route if you are ok with getting muddy even during dry times.

Good walk but I think part of the trail is private feel so we had to improvise... all part of the fun tho

Brilliant walk, just quite boggy on the return back from Stanage pole (an extra part to the walk) as it isn't a proper footpath.

Great route would recommend walking up the waterfall rather than coming down so from the start point head left along the reservoir.

Very nice trail, been here a couple of times. It's popular. the car park can get filled very quickly on a busy day, but there is another near by. Toilets are ok, they cost 20p so make sure you bring coins.

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!

Absolutely lovely walk. A mixture of of terrain, from footpaths to rocky inclines. the views are just absolutely stunning. Worth a trip. Note the weather was gorgeous when I went and because of that the car parks where really full.

Just Brilliant! Views are amazing

2 adults and 2 kids with 2 dogs. Beautiful open spaces, plenty to look at and the stream/rocks/cliffs were great for exploring. We spent so long at the water part that making the rest of the walk wasn't easy for myself. Definitely need energy snacks and drinks in case you stop for a rest somewhere or even an explore. Can't wait to to another day.

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