I was invited to go on a little stroll around Kinder with a friend of mine and jumped at the chance. I have lived in Chesterfield all my life and always wanted to conquer this walk. The weather was good upon leaving Edale which was a blessing as we expected rain. (Car parking and loo stop brilliant here) We joined... More

We set off from Upper Booth & went up Jacobs ladder to Kinder Downfall, the views were fantastic & the walking was exhilarating. Once we were on kinder scout there were midges everywhere (take some repellent as they drove my son mad by the time we got to kinder downfall), we got to Kinder downfall & headed back on the...

Walked the 9 mile round route with my 7 year old son from Edale, up Jacobs Ladder to the summit then along the top through the rocks and then back down to Edale. It is a fantastic walk with breath taking scenery from the start. Most of the route has an obvious path making it easy to follow. My son... More

Took the family up Kinder with the 3 children aged 8, 6 and 3. Managed to park outside the old nag's head and took the route up True Left waterfall coming down towards Upper Booth Farm and returning to Edale. The ascent was a great route up for motivating the children- different things for them to do like run around,... More

We completed a 22 kilometre hike which took in Kinder Scout and Jacob's Ladder. The whole area is amazing, such stunning scenery. Luckily, when we went in June the weather was kind to us meaning the views across the valleys were impressive, and that we didn't need our waterproofs, torches etc. Others may not be so lucky so make sure...

We trekked up to the top of Kinder Scout with our three kids aged 15, 11 & 7 years, plus our dog! We made sure we picked a day with a good clear forecast & took a map & a picnic, & wore proper walking boots. Jacobs ladder was great, really pretty. The paths do vary a lot, some are... More

I had climbed Snowdonia twice and recently scrambled up Helwynn so I had wanted to conquer this one. I enjoy walking but realised I needed guiding up and safely down during the winter months. I had no local knowledge and whilst I was fit to walk, I was aware of my inexperience in climbing. There are many routes to the... More

We decided to walk on the Pennine way from Edale village. The route was long and difficult, especially when climbing Jacobs Ladder. We did not actually walk onto Kinder itself, but decided to take the circular walk on the outskirts which took us back to Edale village. The views were amazing. However, we noticed the footpaths had worn away and... More
