    Kinder Low trig is found on the plateau of Kinder Scout. This spot is very popular with hikers as it boasts wonderful views and is visited by many iconic trails, including the Pennine Way and many Kinder Scout routes. Many people mistakenly believe that this trig pillar marks the summit of Kinder Scout, however the true summit actually lies northeast.

    Often mistaken for but not Kinder Scout. Kinder low is en route from jacobs ladder and just as worthy a destination. Great views in all directions.

    A great trig point on a prominent rock to mark one of the main triangulation points of the Kinder Plateau. The true summit however is a bit further towards the middle of the plateau and is a small cairn.

    This trig point sits high on a boulder on the plateau of Kinder Scout at 633 metres however its not the true summit that lies north-east of Kinder Low. After lunch at Kinder Downfall we headed along the plateau and the kids spotted the trig in the diatance and the race was one!

    Do not leave the main path without boots or very good footwork unless it’s bone dry - you’ll be sinking in peatyness in no time!
