Not a playground for the adrenalin addict, or a challenge for those who value the moors solely as an adventure course extension of a gym. But anyone with a yen for history, subtle geological differences, ecology and rarer fauna will find much of interest. Big Moor is true moorland, in many ways more fascinating than the higher spreads to the north, and despite the proximity of major traffic routes, isolation and quietness are easily found. So also are bogs, purple moor-grass tussocks, potentially tricky stream crossings, and bad weather navigational problems too, so you have been warned. There are no easy paths between Curbar/Froggatt and White Edges on the return leg.The choice is usually between very wet low ground, and less wet but more arduous going on the higher ground.
