The scenery is great and the hike route as well. However, when it has rained/snowed a lot the path is very unclear. Also, very slippery and with the snow kind a hard. Not a short hike and when you are on top windy, so be prepared!! When we got halfway through it started snowing very hard and the path was... More

A pure gem in the English countryside, well worth every step taken and not over strenuous for the less seasoned walker. Fantastic views of the snow covered Peak District from the top An absolute must for the English country liver

Hello ! A few hours ago I walked to Kinder Scout. It was blowing and raining on the top. I had a very good map, but the main problem is that the way (the path) wasn't signed at all. Neither signposts nor arrows. Why ? I don't understand it. Specially ? Fortunately views were impressive and I'm very glad to... More

I have walked on kinder scout many times and on many different routes,upto Ringing Roger from Edale or jaggas clough and Crookstone moor also from Edale.Birchin clough to kinder gates from Snake pass is well worth doing as are the routes from Hayfield.In all Kinder Scout is a fine mountain with many good walks worth doing again and again.

Loved and hated the difficult trail - from muddy to rocky, from well defined path to lost in high grass!!! You find yourself pushing beyond you think you're capable of and the views are there to help you along:-) Will be returning in another season:-)

A good circular walk around a fair bit of the plateau. I walked from Edale village up to Ringing Roger, across Grindsbrook skyline etc to the top of Jacobs's Ladder, across to Kinder Low, past the Kinder Downfall (with a bit of blowback) to the far corner (the Pennine Way exit) - conditions were ok. I then walked across the... More

This is a challenging walk with the added bonus of spectacular views and the waterfall, Kinder Downfall. We always begin and end at Hayfield doing the circular route. (Other reviews have detailed this route). Be sure to go fully prepared because conditions can change quickly. This is a great, great walk. And The Royal Hotel in Hayfield is a great... More

I gave myself 3 hours to walk from Edale train station to the top of Kinder Scout. Unfortunately I had my camera with me so it took a lot longer. Absolutely stunning views and recommend this place to anyone. I am 18 and easily walked this on my own. Ate at the Old Nags Head in Edale and it was... More
