I absolutely loved this walk. Starting at Edale, there was plenty of parking at a decent price. While the majority of the path is paved or worn dirt tracks up to the plateau, it is important to bring a map. There is limited signage and parts of the top of the plateau is a maze of paths littered through a peat bog. I wouldn't recommend navigating the bogs during or just after wet weather as it seems quite easy to start sinking into them.
The views along the whole walk were breath taking, and the higher you get, the better they become. There are some steep parts of the walk, but these are relatively short, such as Jacobs ladder.
The western edge of the plateau gives fantastic views towards Manchester on very clear days and views over a lovely reservoir. If you have the time, a trip a mile or so north takes you to kinder falls, a lovely waterfall, that if the wind is strong enough, is blown upwards as opposed to flowing downwards. The plateau is littered with curiously shaped rocks worn down by wind erosion. While warm clothing is important due to the wind chill, it is easy to burn on sunny days.
