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.

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 .
