    This route, or variations of it, is an absolute classic. Arguably the star attraction of the Peak District, Mam Tor and Great Ridge ignite the desire to explore—walkers from around the globe flock conquer this splendid route at all times of the year.

    Standing at 1,697 feet (517 meters) high, Mam Tor sits on the edge of the Dark Peak and the White Peak; boasting spectacular views for miles, including photographers-favorite Winnats Pass.

    Mam Tor means Mother Hill. It was named because the frequent landslides on its eastern face have created many mini-hills beneath it. These landslides, which are caused by unstable lower layers of shale, also give the hill its alternative name of 'Shivering Mountain' and have produced another of its attraction: the broken road, now twisted and broken from the hill's movements.

    This route is definitely challenging. Make sure you have sturdy boots, suitable clothing, a map and compass. The weather changes fast on Mam Tor and may have fallen victim to this. Do not fear, though, as far as it goes, most people can handle this.

    The village of Hope, where this hike starts, is just a 20-minute train ride from Sheffield city centre. As such, this wild and beautiful landscape could not be easier to reach. There are regular trains, as Hope is on the line to Manchester. You can also catch the 271 and 272 bus service. If you are travelling by car, however, a good starting point is from Castleton Visitor Centre car park.
