    The Pennine Way starts exactly as it means to go on: challenging but always rewarding.

    From Edale, you begin with a steep ascent up Jacob’s Ladder. This iconic stone staircase is a wonderful climb and your efforts are rewarded with breathtaking views once you reach the summit of Kinder Low.

    Following this ascent, the way’s second-longest, the trail is mainly flat and continues across the moors, through Devil’s Dike, past the unusually-shaped Wain Stones and eventually to Bleaklow Head, where you can enjoy stunning panoramic views over the rugged gritstone and peat landscape.

    It is a long, but gentle descent from Bleaklow Head to Crowden, where the first day finishes. There is a youth hostel and campsite in Crowden, which both serve food.

    There is not much else in the tiny hamlet, though, so make sure you pick-up any last-minute essentials before starting the walk in Edale.

    Remember that rucksacks are not usually waterproof! So put your clothes in a thick waterproof bag in your rucksack.
    Also remember that you cannot drink water from a stagnant pool even if you add disinfectant tablets & boil the water.
