“Breathtaking (very)”
Review of Stanage Edge

Attraction details
Reviewed September 10, 2012

I first visited this amazing structure a few months ago and still cannot believe what variety it provides.

You should definitely:
1) Marvel at the changes under your feet and around you: paths, rocks, lunar lanscapes, heather, fern, woods and scree. Decent footwear to your advantage.
2) Marvel at the changing weather: the wind really can blow and the rain can be sideways. However, the sun can beat down on you too. All of this can be in the same day. Be prepared.
3) Marvel at how many different activities take place here: walking, jogging, climbing, photography, camping, cycling, motor-cycling. You should be able to find something to do.
4) Marvel still more about the variety of the scenery with the changing seasons: each season has its own facets and provides different attractions to the eye.
5) Marvel still more about some of those man made paths: just when and how were they laid and be impressed at just how they have survived.
6) Marvel at the views: just stop, pause and look. You will not be disappointed.

It really is the most splendid area.

I think this place will have different charm in different weather. Generally this is part of a long hiking route but we took our car to most of the way as the wife is pregnant. We followed the signs for stanage in google but continued up before the last turn suggested (as recommended by a local) and found a place with small informal parking space next to the road, you can pretty much walk from many routes up. Both of us and my brother enjoyed walking up, only 10 mins walk or so and you climb all the way top by easy routes itself. We went on a rainy day but am sure sunny days might be even better. Preferably go in the morning. Great viewes, many balanced stones and if the weather permits good picnic place too...

Lovely view but look at the signs or take a map. We ended up taking a route that involved a lot of scrambling to get to the top of stanage edge. But the route down was a lot easier when we found the path.

Great walk. Loved it, steep in places but the views from the top are amazing. Best to wear walking boots as it is very uneven at the top, also can be wet underfoot.

I think that we were on Stanage edge (!) we parked and walked to the top of a tor and had great views over the Hope Valley. Take care with the parking as the meters only take cards.
