Kinder Scout & Mam Tor from Edale, Peak District
Guided Walking in the Peak District
The two most popular summits (and 3 trig points) in one Hike
Maximum group size - 8 people
This is a fairly challenging but fantastic hike, bagging three trig points and the two most popular summits in the Peak District in one 12 mile hike.
The walk starts out with a steady climb of 400m (1200ft) up onto the Kinder plateau where you'll hike past some of the best sights including Grindslow Knoll, the Pig Rock, Wool Packs and Pym Chair before reaching the highest summit of the Peak District, Kinder Scout at 636m.
After bagging your first trig point we take a fairly easy path that stays high and takes us to the second trig point at Brown Knoll at 569m. Next a gently undulating section takes us to our final trig point and summit, the famous Mam Tor (or Shivering Mountain) at a height of 517m. From here we'll experience "one of the top ten views in England".
We then follow along the Great Ridge towards Hollins Cross, which provides a great place to view the remains of the old Sheffield to Chapel en le Frith road which was lost to the land slips in 1979. We continue down to Edale.
Meet: Edale main car park at 08:45 for an 09:00 start

The walk is mostly on good tracks and smaller footpaths and includes 1 fairly long hill up from Edale, a climb of 400m (1200ft). At any time of year there could be some muddy sections, especially on Kinder with it's peat bogs. As we climb up onto Kinder the path becomes rougher. There is a fairly long descent towards Edale at the end which is quite steep in places with a drop of about 300m (900ft).
