Overview

A Christmas treat for you all with a rarely walked figure of eight trip encompassing many of the highlights that this wonderful part of the world has to offer. 

Starting at Edale car park, we ascend Mam Tor and walk the full length of the great ridge before dropping into Hope from Lose Hill. From there we dodge the mud to get to Castleton and then take the track over Hollins Cross and back to the start point.

Christmas wear welcome, Christmas carols if you must. Good weather could mean wonderful views and we finish we a well deserved pint of Christmas Ale in one of Edales two pubs.
