lovely walk and scenery

A brilliant place for a days walk, plenty of stunning scenery and lovely little village.

not for the faint

Great hike! Unfortunately it was a cloudy misty day and views at top were limited.

Beautiful forest! Stunning natural heath with free roaming ponys. Hiked the White Moor section.

Rather easy walk, beautiful scenery. We walked mainly in the rain so there was a lot of mud and even a stream on some parts of the route.

No parking at Beltring, so we parked at Yalding and walked in reverse.
Trail is on a very dangerous road initially near Beltring. We avoided this by simply turning around and going back to Yalding.

Great circular walk over varying terrains.

Fantastic hike to see a more remote part of the Lake District mountains and scale the peak of England. Be prepared for very rocky terrain and plan more time in your hike. It was cloudy and difficult to scale that last part to the peak. On the way back you will get to a turnoff that goes up (see arrow on rock). It is a bit challenging for a moment, but provides better views on the way back. This hike was way more tiring that a similar distance hike we did to The Old Man Coniston but well worth it for the views, the feeling of having the mountain to yourself, various creeks, and solitude.

Great day and a great hike!! We research this place as a detour as we head up North to the Lake District national park. Cool little town where you start and finish. Great for a cold drink at the end of your day. We took the Lose Hill/Holland Cross route to Mam Tor then an abbreviated route back to Castleton. Would have given 5 stars but no water and that is a critical part of my rating scale.
Beautiful views. Definitely worth the trip.

Nice family walk, cool Bowes from the hill and Nice stones on the incline. Very windy but fun! Nice place to grab a sandwich and coffee at the bottom of the road.

Easy walk. Memorable sites.

We wanted something for the whole family, and this hike had it all. The Heathersage Moor was delightful with the ferns, cotton grass, flowers, and slightly damp soils. We walked up to Carl Wark, which is an old (iron age?) fort. Then up to Higgor Tor, where the winds were blowing and had great views. Next you walk up to Upper Burbage to cross under the bridges then back along the Burbage Rocks. If you look at the rocks you can see thousands of bullet holes from the Army training drills from WWII. I think everyone was happy with this hike.

Very nice hike, at times a little rough with ankle biting rocks, but very manageable. I went up towards Great Gable and decided that I had enough time to climb that one as well. It was a bit extra at 1500 feet to 2800 feet, and back down again, but I did have all day. Then went around the back side of Scafell Pike (although the corridor route looked like a good way to go). I lucked out and had a day with great views, and greatly enjoyed the high point of England. Coming back down along the route in this map was quite beautiful, with creek flowing, and all the sheep nearby made my day something unique for this American!

Good fun. Not toooo hard, but easy to get lost when the clouds come over so stick to the path. I recommended doing a loop round up to the path south of Great Gable, and down the valley back to Wasdale and end at the pub for a quick refreshment

A must do on any trip to London. History surrounds you. Great picture opportunities everywhere. Unforgettable.

Great place with lots of good views!

Beautiful views and moderate hike

mountain biking

there are 3 trails here all together one easy and 2 harder it's a good beginner trail but the trails could be a bit more flowy and more more jumps apart from that it's a great bike ride

We parked at the Stag and Hunstmen and had a drink before we set off. Their food menu looked really nice and the plan was to return for dinner however when we reached Henley it started raining suddenly quite heavily so we stopped at The Angel pub which is right on the bridge (food and service was awesome).
We saw lots of different birds and lots of activity on the river with rower.

Will definitely do this walk again, you could do it in reverse and just go to the Hambledon lock

A perfect route. With something for everyone

If your looking for a short hike, this is definitely worth doing. (I did it in 3hrs 10 mins)
Unfortunately I picked an afternoon when the mist was down, so didn't see much of the view.
An easy trail to follow, with a reasonably good footpath

Loads of walks and routes around the orchard.

It's only three stars because there are no stunning, magnificent views. You do get views of Thirlmere on a couple of occasions around the walk. Other than that, it's perfectly decent to while away an hour or so. Make sure you have the right footwear as the start of the walk which follows Dob Gill is fairly steep, rocky and in places marshy and muddy. The tarn is a treat and a great photo op.
