We did the National Trust 3 mile circular walk from Mam Nik Car Park.
Family of seven. Three kids 7, 9 & 11. Two pensioners 70+
The walk is amazing, views stunning.
I would say the walk up to Mam Tor is easier than going back as the trail can be quite muddy and slippy, but what do you expect, it's the countryside!!

All along the walk up to Mam Tor the trail was strewn dog poo bags.....WHY!!!

There is no reason other than dog owners are selfish idiots....and they are!!!

You own the bloody dog you own the bloody poo, take responsibility!!!

An absolutely brilliant walk! Not too long, not too strenuous but very very breathtaking.... the views not the effort! Can see the best part of the valley and down into Castleton from the top. Sunny when we started, soaking when we finished but wow what a place!

Fantastic way to blow the cobwebs away.
We walked for around 5 miles on a cloudy, damp Monday but were still in awe at the great views. Was great that because of the weather there were not too many others out - it would be lovely in the height of summer but equally you'd pay the price of sharing this with far more other tourists.

We holidayed recently in Castleton and did the Losehill to Mam Tor ridge walk as part of the 10 mile parish boundary walk. Starting in Castleton village, parts of the climb up to Losehill are fairly arduous and we were glad that we had walking poles. the ridge walk itself is nothing short of stunning with 360 degree panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. We were fortunate to have a warm cloudless day as well. Will certainly be back!!

Really enjoyed this walk and the views were spectacular, we started in Castleton did a big circle walked into Hope village and back into Castleton.
Took us over five hours but we’ll worth it.
We walked on the pathways and trekked off
the designated walk ways.

We parked in the National Trust car park near Mam Tor , ready to walk the ridge. The path was dry and easy to follow with a few ups and downs along the way so it was quite strenuous but well worthwhile. We took a picnic which we ate on Black Tor along the way . The walk was not busy as it was mid-week and the views were fantastic all the way.

We were staying in Castleton and walked to Losehill then along the ridge to Mam Tor. We continued on the loop around passing the head of Winnats Pass to Peverill Castle and back into Castleton village. We were lucky with excellent weather blue skies and little wind. Apart from the steady climb up to Losehill and a similar decent at the end near the castle, the walk is easy. Much of the ascent to Mam Tor from Hollins Cross is on flagstones. Great for people but less easy for dogs.

We parked on a road for free nearby where the walk “starts”. The path is made up of stone slabs so can be a bit uneven at times, but not really a challenging walk. The views were absolutely amazing - you can see for miles and miles. Well worth a visit for a hike. It’s also convenient that there are plenty of other Peak District attractions nearby, such as several caves and winnets pass.

Whilst there are lovely views this is a horrible walk with a dog. First of all the paths are flagstones or rocks, there are sheep so the dog is on the lead, in some places leading up to losehill there are electric fences and the stiles!!! The stiles are horrendous for dogs, no gap for them to get under and no dog stole anywhere. We ended up having to lift our 35kg dog over and some had steep drops. If the dog had wriggled we would both had fallen.
Totally shocked that this was NT land.
Don’t do it

We parked in the visitor centre at Castleton £5 all day. Then walk down the side of the Castle pub to the end and down a little lane and you are on the walk. You can then follow the path and walk all the way past Blue John Cavern and up Mam Tor and all the way along the ridge to Lose Hill then down and follow the river back into Castleton about 9 miles round trip. A fantastic walk with such great views and a much needed pint in one of the great pubs in Castleton. A really good day out.
