I've always had a soft spot for Kinder Scout since walking holidays as a teenager. I note a great deal of reviews suggesting it's a disappointing peat bog when you get there. That's not the case. Best route I always think is to go up from Edale station, via Grindsbrook Clough, then the easiest way back is to walk due... More

I have spent many happy hour walking in the peal district but never ventured to the Kinder area until last week. I spent two days walking from Edale and from Hayfield round kinder downfall. This has to be some of the highlights of my Peak District walks. If you get a chance ... Do it.

Kinder Scout is the highest point in the Peaks and in Derbyshire. It is just a mountain. As such, it attracts many walkers simply bent on reaching the somewhat disappointing summit from which the views are quite frankly miserable as it is fundamentally the highest point of a plateau. If you are actually on the Scout, of course, then you... More

Beautiful place to walk, parking can be hard when busy. The views when you reach the summit are the best. Will be back asap

Walked up through Jacob's ladder and around the Kinder Area. Plenty of boggy peat, and very steep inclines. Beautiful views, what a breathtaking place. Certainly exercises your legs and lungs.

Me and my husband hiked to Kinder Scout two weeks ago and it was absolutely an exhilarating experience. As most of the websites says- this walk is a bit hard, requires a good level of fitness and definitely a good sunny day. We started off our walk from Edale village car park area( S33 7ZL) and took a route to... More

I have done this walk with my wife during my birthday weekend in Peak District. We have started from Edale village, followed the Pennine Way via the Jacob's Ladder and on to Kinder Low and then returned to Edale on a different path so in the end we have done a nice circle route. The views are beautiful especially on... More

Nothing to dislike.Quite a pull up Williams Clough but well worth it.Very easy to get lost so navigational skills and suitable equipment are essential. It can be cold at any time of year.

We've walked up to and across Kinder numerous times and love the Kinder Plateau. Stunning views from the top make the effort getting their worthwhile. Some good pubs to end the day that serve real ales and fine food. So many long walks taking in steep cloughs, plus good paths and the trackless waste of the Kinder Plateau. We've walked... More
