    Probably the one of the most popular peaks in the Peaks, and when you see the views you can understand why.

    The thing I love about Mam Tor is the sheer amount of options you have. I've been here several times and you can do a really short walk from the road up Mam Tor, this is great if you want to get out and the weather is a little bit less than ideal. However, if you want to extend this hike, you can climb Mam Tor, descend, and hike up and across Mam Nick which is a lovely, much longer hike. This mountain is quite long in comparison, extending the short Mam Tor hike from an hour or two, to a half-day trip. There's also Win Hill and Lose Hill nearby, and they can provide a further extension, both lovely hikes... I spent a full day exploring this area and these hills and mountains, and it wasn't enough! I've been back a few times, but if you're from further afield, I recommend staying here a few days as there are lots of other things to do in and around Castleton too!

    Probably the most popular pf the peaks in the Peaks, the views from the top explain why.

    Incredible views, but the gusts can blow you off your feet on a windy day!

    Brilliant views, well worth walking along the whole ridge.

    Invigorating climb and certainly blows away the cobwebs on a windy day!

    Fascinating to see the power of nature and the way the landslips have destroyed the road

    You can ride your bike up here. There are routes from both the Edale and Castleton sides that take you to Hollins cross . There is also a gate where the road cuts the peaks of mam nick and mam tor. That runs around below the peak to join the limestone pavement section. Stunning views. Get there really early to see it at its best IMHO.

    Popular spot with great views over the Edale & Castleton valleys, good start point for a hike along the great ridge to Hope or the other way along spectacular Rushup edge and maybe watch the hang gliders

    The most beautiful place in the Peak District. The view is terrific. The landscape is picturesquely beautiful. You do not want to leave here. Mam Tor and the surrounding area is a must for every visitor to the Peak District.
