    The footpath up to the top of Mam Tor includes a lot of steps, like a massive staircase. You can take a lot of the strain & fatigue away by walking along side the steps on the grass verge. This is a great tip for those with kids or with bad knees like a gentleman I met on the Tor once.

    Hollins Cross is more or less mid way along the ridge, great views of Mam Tor, Lose Hill, and even Win Hill.

    I have just been reading some of the comments . One in particular comment recommends walking on the grass verge at the side of the many steps leading to the summit of Man Tor. Doesn't the person posting this comment realise that the forestry commission,the countryside commission ,the National Trust and 100s of volunteers spend 10s of thousands of pounds repairing the erosion caused by the thousands of feet that tread these beautiful landscapes we have in Yorkshire and Derbyshire. The steps the writer refers to are the result of the said erosion. Walking at the side of the steps and encouraging others to do the same is totally wrong. In doing so they add to the never ending cost of repairing the damage caused by I'll advised well wishers. Gripe over .

    Follow the path down to a small monument in a dip in the ridge.

    Hollins cross lies between Mam Tor and Lose Hill on the spectacular Great Ridge that separates Castleton and Edale. The views are incredible

    Half way point along the great ridge really between Mam Tor and Loose Hill. Superb vantage point...but the whole ridge is really.
