Kinder Scout from Edale - Guided Walk, Peak District
Peak District Guided Walks
A classic Kinder Scout hike, to it's quieter summit from Edale in the Peak District
Maximum group size - 8 people
Visit one of the quieter summit trig points on this great Kinder Scout Hike.
Starting from the village of Edale we head up one of the quieter routes onto Kinder Scout. Once we reach the top we walk along the southern edge of Kinder, taking in little-known rock formations such as the Druids Stone. We will then reach the fantastic eastern corner of Kinder with it's magnificent views over to the Eastern Edges. Next we follow the northern side of Kinder, and it's eastern summit trig point before taking one of the famous unmarked "Kinder Crossings" across the notoriously difficult to navigate plateau.
On our way back to Edale there a number of different route options we can take depending on the group and conditions on the day.
Meet: Edale main car park at 08:45 for an 09:00 start
Grade: Fairly Strenuous
Height Gain: 650m/2200ft
Price: £404% booking fee (capped at £5) +VAT will be applied.
The walk is partly on good footpaths and partly rougher stony paths. There is one fairly long ascent of about 400m/1200ft and a similar descent at the end. There are likely to be some muddy sections and due to the nature of the Kinder Scout plateau we may well encounter areas of peat bogs. You will need to be reasonably physically fit and have some experience of walking in rough terrain. Walking boots providing good ankle protection and grippy soles which will also keep your feet dry in boggy areas are definitely required.
