Great walk on a clear day

Went up Kinder Scout via William Clough from the Hayfield Campsite. Walked along the edge and down via Kinder Low end.

I was there with my friends and we really enjoyed it. To climb Kinder Scout isn´t very difficult and the view from the crest around Kinder Scout is unforgetable. We were very lucky to have sunny day and we even burnt our faces and ears! I would recommend this trip to families and even to older people, there is a... More

AMAZING is the only word to describe our walk at Kinder Scout today. We were looking for a day out of the city so caught the train from Manchester Piccadilly to Edale and walked through the town up Grinds Brook, across the ridge past the wind eroded rocks and down Jacobs ladder. The hike up Grinds Brook is pretty tough,... More

I walked (and pushed my road bike) from the Kinder Reservoir to Edale and while it was a rough terrain, the views were really lovely. I walked up to the Kinder Scout Low Trig point. There were some rocks appropriate for bouldering and a few people climbing there. It would have been more comfortable to be without a bike, but... More

Having done Mam Tor recently we thought our next trek should be a little harder so decided on kinder Scout, going up Jacob's ladder and down Grinds brook Clough!! if you aren't used to walking and have a poor fitness level do not attempt this route. Jacob's ladder was the hardest climb I have done to date (and I consider... More

My husband and me began our walk to the top through Crowded Clough. It begins along the Pennine way but bifurcates off before Jacobs ladder..quite easy early on but gets pretty steep near the top. Enjoyable climb up along the stream through the rocks. Also, when we went, the stream was not really at its best, but i can imagine... More

Most people climb up to the Kinder Scout from the Edale side - but we enjoyed a fabulous walk from just outside of Hayfield (on the other side). We drove through Hayfield following signs for a campsite there - where there is a small car park. This is a pay and display but the road leading to the carpark is... More

Started at Edale and did the 'tops' walk around. Absolutely stunning views everywhere you look! Make sure you take a drink with you and maybe an energy bar as if you plan to climb only 1 hill, you will change your mind once you get up there! The weather changes quite quick too so be prepared for any weather. Well... More

We went to Kinder Scout in 3 groups and arranged to met at one of the pubs in Edale. Unfortunately, the car I was in had a puncture and by the time we had changed the tyre we could not get hold of our friend as they had no reception once in Edale (O2 seems to work there). I telephone... More

Beginning at Edale and the start of the Pennine Way, this was a terrific walk on a sunny cold spring day. An easy start with a couple of steep uphill sections, but good under foot with established paths. Spectacular scenery across moorland & boulder fields with great views everywhere. A popular walk at the weekend, there were plenty of people... More
