Tips

  • Tom

    This ridge is very wide in comparison to the famous ridges across the UK, just beware on a gusty day if heading up the west to east on Back Tor as it's a big drop. The views are great on a clear day.

  • The views are incredible. Well worth a visit!

  • Wide, sometimes paved paths make it fairly accessible.

  • Always nice to see where you've come from and know where you've got to get back to:)

  • One of the best lower level ridge walks in the UK. Totally safe and views to die for!
