I love "special" roads and this falls into that category. Not as frightening as say Hard Knot or Wrynose Passesin the Lake District but still worth the drive or the walk if you are fit enough ..Beautiful Scenery ...

Classic beautiful Peak District scenery, you can drive through, walk, picnic and visit the caverns. A unique place that can be busy during high season.

Stunning climb up from the Hope Valley, and great views all around from the top. Lovely moorland walks at the top.

Really scenic and good to have a walk up. It's not noticeable until you get to it either. Really worth a visit. The road itself is quite narrow.

Go ride it to appreciate the climb, when you see the stone wall at the top you know you have achieved it! Then take the family down it on foot, explore the caves and sit back smugly knowing you had beaten it.. Really nice way to finish the Ridge walk and head back into Castleton to a welcoming pub.

Very scenic, a lot of WOW! Factor. Tucked away until you get to it . A traditional pass with sheep grazing, quite a hike up there but you can cheat and drive!

This pass really takes you by surprise when you approach it on your way to Castleton. It is small but so beautiful. It's well worth walking it and then continuing on to tackle the Mam Tor ridge.

Such and amazing location with breathtaking views. Location surrounded by a lovely piece of countryside. There is a very steep climb on a path that is not marked by a sign, but it is well worth it once you get to the top. Take it easy on the way down. Scenery leading down towards Castleton. Would visit over and over... More

Our friends suggested we try out a drive up 'winnat's' as they call it. So glad we did. Spectacular views, very steep and hard getting my range rover up as I didn't expect it to be so steep or would have put it in a different gear.
