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.

Don't do it on a bike as it is VERY steep. Beautiful scenery set in the middle of the Peak District National Park. Combine it with Speedwell

The road through Winnats Pass and the adjacent walks are beautiful and though some walks are demanding they are all worthwhile. It can get crowded and cars can be a problem

Twisting roads, huge cliffs, jagged rocks, sheep. An amazing piece of scenery. On route to Castleton and caverns well worth seeing

We were on a motorcycle road trip and on our way to stay in Castleton when we rode through Winnat's pass. Unfortunately, we were in the tail end of ex-hurricane Bertha and the wind and rain prevented us from enjoying this stunning little road on our bikes, as we no doubt would have done in the dry!

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.
