A steep road which most of the trails run alongside with spectacular scenery leading down towards Castleton the higher you get up - will lead you upto mam tor eventually

A great drive both up and down. Fantastic views but can be busy. Being lazy I admired both the walkers and cyclists but its oneof the most attractive roads I have driven on up on the scale of Cheddar gorge.

Sat on a hill in gloroius sunshine. It was silent apart from the bleat of the lambs that cover the hillside. We did nothing but just... More

We chose a diversion across the Peak District whilst traveling from Sheffield to Liverpool. We wanted to stay off major A-roads and we selected a route through Castleton. This pass is a beautiful, winding, narrow road with massive views. You access the route via the road signs for Sparrowpit. Be sure to plan for extra time to stop and take... More

Finally conquered Winnats Pass today. It is an amazing geological feature with caverns at either end and plenty of walking, mountain biking, paragliding and more or less anything else you fancy outdoors nearby. Just don't take your caravan unless you can't make sense of the 20% warning sign because for half a mile it is exactly that.

This is a spectacular pass that is well worth going off the main roads to find and admire. The views all around are spectacular.

Park in the car park opposite Speedwell Cavern. I paid four pounds which allowed me to roam the area most of the day and gave me a discount into Speedwell Cavern. There are other caverns in the area. If you like walking walk up from the car park and eat your sandwiches at the top while you admire the view.... More

We visited few sites in peak district but Winnat's pass was the most memorable experience! It is unique and I haven't seen anything similar in the UK. Definitelly worth to stop and wander around even if you are not a walker. But if your car is not greatly powerful I would suggest approaching from the West as it will be... More

It's winter. It's plastered in snow. There are no crowds just outdoors types. The views to Lose Hill and Win Hill Pike and down the Hope Valley are great.
