Easy walk with the kids
Aug 2021
This is a good walk to do with kids as you are pretty much straight into the views - its probably only about 300m or so from the car park to the edge, and once there you get the views, rocks to clamber and pose on and you can then go as far as you choose.

Nice views, and in August there was lots of purple heather on the walk.

The car park isn't huge, and I could not find a ticket machine (though free for NT members so no issue for us).

Friday to Sunday a van and a couple of tables show up for quality coffees, cakes and ice creams and the like.

Amazing views
Jul 2021 • Solo
There are a number of stunning walks which set off from Curbar Edge. The ones closest to the edge offer stunning views of the Hope Valley below.

The walks are generally quite easy, with the paths wide and limited rocks to negotiate. It’s also fine for dogs.

The car park can get quite full and there is limited parking in the lay-bys on the way up to the main car park.

There is normally a refreshment van in the car park but wasn’t when we visited so I recommend taking your own provisions.

A good place for the soul.

Outstanding

A stunning walk high up amongst these giant organic rocks. Views to die for. Not difficult walking or too many hills but you must pick your own way amongst the rocks. Not idea for small children or loose dogs there are no barriers to stop you falling. You can walk as far as you want we didn’t find a circular walk but I’m sure there are printed routes.

Picturesque views and rolling hills.

Great way to spend an afternoon. Stunning views, terrain not tricky with the right boots. Free roaming cattle.There is restaurant near the start of the walk if eats are needed. Definitely worth doing if in the region. We re enacted the iconic Pride and Prejudice scene with Kiera's dress blowing in the wind! See if you can spot the stones with Bible references too.

Stunning views
Nov 2020 • Family
We had a couple of hours walking today and taking photos nothing strenuous about this walk it's all relatively flat if a bit rocky which adds to its appeal.

The sun was out and we were above the clouds which lent itself to some lovely images. Wellbeing sorted for the day

Lovely circular walk!
Oct 2020 • Couples
....even better if the weather is good.
Would love to come back in the Spring/Summer, with better views and a little less rain.
Took the circular walk from the Curbar Gap car park, across Curbar Edge, Froggatt Edge and down to the road and The Grouse Inn (would recommend), before back up to White Edge and back to the car park.
Look put for deer on the way back. An enjoyable and a little challenging walk, depending on conditions.

Stunning scenery
Sep 2020
Always a five star review when walking the Peak District. A unique & special place that as a local lad I feel very privileged to share with other people. We walked above the village of Calver & enjoyed the spectacular views of Chatsworth & the surrounding countryside. Our trail crossed Highland Cattle grazing. They were friendly whilst I was wary of their presence. My photographs will speak volumes. A place to find peace of mind & solace. You need to be good with mobility & wear appropriate footwear.

Free roaming cattle and deer
Sep 2020
A great walk along the edge which I done nice and early on two mornings. The veiws are stunning but be mindful of the winds if you get too close to the edge. There are also free roaming cattle and deer which I managed to see. There are not many car parking spaces though but arrive early and avoid the hassle.

Spectacular views and lots of routes
Jul 2020 • Friends
Curbar Edge is a wonderful introduction to the Peak District. With great views down the valley, some good bouldering at the base in Curbar Field and plenty of spots for lunch. There are lots of clearly identifiable routes for you to explore and it’s impossible to get lost. Car parking is good and if you are lucky a lovely coffee (and cake) van may be there. I’d recommend heading left, walk the loop and then head over to the main edge for a spot of lunch and thermos of coffee.
