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.

Overcast day with breakthroughs of sun throughout day. Fantastic loop and a brilliant scramble near beginning. Really enjoyable

Long distance with amazing views!

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.

Wow. Gorgeous hike with spectacular views. Very windy. Take a shell and gloves for protection against wind chill below 15 degrees C.
