fun and challenging walk especially if you start from right side from car park. Last push for summit is especially challenging I advise good shoes path is rough.

This is a very scenic hike, right from the rock scrambles to the plateau to the view of the valley from Kinder Downfall. There is some amount of s rambling to the top, and I lost the trail on the top to kinder downfall and was walking along a bog (wet and muddy), but finding the trail again gave a me a great sense of accomplishment. The hike ends along the Pennine Way where you can meet the bay packers walking to/from Scotland!

Steep up and down, but great view of the lake all throughout.

my first hike for nearly over 10years, had an amazing day the view wernt the best because of low clouds but what a climb, very rocky at the start but the path gets easier as you go, just keep thinking your nearly there and you'll do it, that's my motto and I conquered it of to snowdan next week then the big Ben Nevis after then hitting irish peaks, I can say the pike got me attached.

Simple route which at the summit provides excellent views. Very stony so decent hiking boots are a must!

Great climb, wall falls! View!

Great walk, great exposure to sun and can see far for most of the walk.

The uphill trail in the middle was good for working out, and a jog down increased the heart rate. Tired by the end, but plenty of places to visit on the way back.

Would go back & recommend going back with friends and family.

Would go for a speedy trek if I wanted to work out... very nice to go, we came from Birmingham and appears to be local.

We wore, meindl men’s Cambridge GTX walking shoe, and salomon 3D 4 gtx womens. 32 degrees clear skies sunny all day

Beautiful trail full of water wonders, woodland and a fantastic ice cream van at the peak. A lovely little trail every time

Fantastic 360 degree panoramic view awaits the end of the hike up.

We didn’t take exactly this trail. We took the ferry from Keswick across Derwent Water lake to the cat bells trailhead.

We then ascended to cat bells and walked along the ridge line to several additional high points — Maiden Moor and High Spy. Then we back tracked a bit and descended and took the ferry back. This was about 5 miles and ~2000 ft total elevation gain.

One can easily add chunks of distance to this hike on the end (all flat) if you want to hike along Derwent Water a bit to one of the various ferry points— or all the way back along the lake.

All in all a fantastic hike with great views.

Never done a walk or hike before ... but decided to try the three peaks as my first with my best friend... we managed to complete pen-y-ghent, whernside in 9 hours ... unfortunately we only got up to steep climb on ingleborough... we are returning next month to complete

Pretty easy with a moderate scramble in the middle

Terrible and of no use

For a novice walker this route really impressed me!

Beautiful walk

Very good on a hot summers day

An earlier comment lamented at how this trail is incorrectly classified as a moderate difficulty trail, and how it was too difficult for kids and for adults who aren't properly fit. More than 3 hours of walking later, I agree and disagree.

When I started out, I looked at the less than 300m elevation and quietly sniggered at our lamenting friend - 270m over 8.9km is usually child's play.
Having walked up and down from the 3rd floor of my Victorian flat in London to pick up deliveroo several times a day, I was convinced this would be a walk in the park.

And as I walked from Otford to the starting point by a serene afternoon cricket game and a slightly smelly stable, the ground was as flat as some folks think the world is and life looked good.

But the 270m elevation happend all at once, after you're past the first straight. At one point it was so steep that steps were built in. I dragged myself up the slope, each step making me wince while also watched grey-haired veterans make an easy job of it.

The view, however, is worth it - gentle rolling hills follow, walking through farms and meadows which are a riot of flowers in spring (I visited in June). There are woods too, and lovely, dark and deep - on a sunny day, the contrasts between the open and closed sections of the trail are immensely enjoyable.

Having born and raised in India where to be alone is a luxury, it was also a pleasant surprise to find strangers friendly and keen to stop for a chat - back home, we'd do our best to pretend the other didn't exist.

Is this an easy trail for a 110kg 6 foot man who is 31 years old? No, but the juice was worth the squeeze.

Not a bad way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Such a lovely walk, only took around 3 hours

the views along the route are amazing with great views of dover castle and the white cliffs along the way. the hike isnt too difficult and you can continue hiking past the lighthouse if you would like to spend some more time on the hike. it is about an hour or so to the lighthouse and another back plus time to sit and take pictures. overall a good hike with interesting scenery there is a shipwreck you can see on the shore that is pretty cool as well.

A good trail which follows a signed Coldrum Trail for much of the way with an extension to take in the stones. At least that was our impression, as the markers were not always obvious and we used the app map several times. The stones are worth visiting, what an amazing find. Near there appeared to be a path which could cut the route in half for those that prefer a short hike. We had dogs and other than the Trosley country park itself we had them unleashed for much of the walk.
