About The Event
Join Abbie as she leads a walk up and over Kinder Scout, the highest point of the Peak District National Park. This beautiful route is by far one of the most popular trails across the entire Park; a wild circular leaving from Edale via Grindsbrook Clough where we climb high into the hills, then along the ridge via the Woolpacks, a fascinating collection of rocks weathered over thousands of years. We will then loop around and down via Jacob’s Ladder and make our way back to Edale through rolling agricultural land. Expect to find incredible views, a bit of scrambling, little stream crossings, and a feeling of wild awe that may leave you breathless.
Please note this event needs a minimum booking of 6 to take place.
