A fantastic circular hill walk retracing the steps of the famous Kinder Scout mass trespass. Follow to the path up William Clough to Penine Way along the plateau edge. Next, pass the Kinder Downfall and Kinder Low completing the loop.

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.

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.

Great walk. Even in December with the weather coming in there was some great views. Not all the gates are accessible for dogs... Had to lift my dog over some of them so if you don't think you can do this then don't to this trail

Amazing hike completed in 6 hours, hiking 12 miles, tough terrain but worth the challenge.

One of my favourite hikes, exhilarating difficulty of Jacobs ladder, balanced out by some fairly leisurely walking.

Early start, walk was nice. I should of looped anti-clockwise, would of been better. Lovely views and was peaceful as walked on a Tuesday. Will defiantly walk that again.

Really fun hike even though we mistakenly turned left and went down Jacobs ladder, only to have to walk back up it haha.
