Decent walk. if you want to go on crook hill you have to go abit off trail. You can also go round alport castles if you go off route too.

A good walk for beginners who want to break their new walking boots in! Beautiful scenery.

Great trail for a moderate walk. Path takes you down to the reservoirs, past farms with sheep and cattle, through pine tree woods mysterious and dark, as well as broad-leafed tree forests full of shrubbery and rugged old trees. Undulating terrain and very visually stimulating surroundins. Lovely walk around the reservoirs, pubs to be found near the roadside for refreshments. Parking at Tegg's Nose Country Park car park costs £3 for the day, cards accepted.

Be careful. Not sure if we took a wrong turning (were on the correct route according to the app’s map) whilst going up near the waterfalls but very difficult hiking and having to cross the river a number of times. Slippery stones caused me to take a tumble in the river. Eventually had to turn back as didn’t feel it was safe with our dogs. Aside from this it was an exciting trail with beautiful views and very varied walking.

One of my favourite short peak District walks, Only variation is I park in the black rocks car park then walk down the hill through Cromford to get the boring bit out of the way :) on returning I always climb up the black Rocks and the view is magnificent

A nice family walk on the disused rail line. Would have been nicer if more of it was adjacent to the river.

lovely walk, beautiful views and interesting countryside.

Monks Dale was magical but slippy and tough going if you're not very light on your feet.

Brilliant walk and the waterfalls are really pretty in the autumn. Beware of the bog at the end as you travel up the moor (watch underfoot) Important to note, many of the styles are not dog friendly, so if you take your dog on this one be prepared to carry them!

Easy walk , sun shone most of the time, over a mile on the road but still nice views, & nice walk back along the river derwent

We went up the from the bottom of stanage edge and walked up and then scrambled through the rocks it was a challenging walk especially because we took the harder inclines and the clockwise route, so started from the end to the bottom.

The first part clockwise is definitely *not* easy. The stream was difficult to cross, especially with a dog, and the scramble up turned first outcrop quite hard. From there on it was much easier, save the boggy area. I chose to bin the complete walk and headed to the Tor. The Tor climb and back to the car park was so much easier. Off to the caravan with soggy walking boots for a warming soup.

Well maked out flat and easy route to end my day.

Clear and easy to walk

A bit muddy in places as you'd expect at this time of year, but a lovely walk.

very good walk. a tough uphill climb for a good mile to get you going. once you've got to the little round trig at the lost lad its all pretty much straight forward and the views are stunning along derwent edge.
