Very muddy conditions for 3-4km after going up the waterfall. Struggle a little to stay on route

Fun climb up a river bed, and once you’re up beautiful views and a mostly flat walk. The stretch towards Kinder Downfall was tough - no clear path to follow, no landmarks, very boggy and peaty.

Fantastic hike, very muddy at the top, I would take this in mid as the trail can get harder to follow. Other than that it was a great hike.

Got lost finding the trail back down so had to take a bit of a detour. Very pretty in the snow though!

Great route. Everything was slick with ice which made it a great challenge. no views this time so will be back again in a different season.

Wr arrived in Edale at 8 and started the trail from behind the old nags head. Once reaching a small bridge we decided to turn left instead of right (no signposts or any indications available to help identify the routes) Turing left , left us walking uphill on rocks which were loose, slippery and muddy so becareful. Again there were no signs so we were questioning a lot of the time if we were even on a route but after more than an hour of “rock climbing” we reached the top which was extremely windy and cold. The walk down was much easier and enjoyable but I definitely wouldn’t recommend anyone to turn left when reaching the bridge
