About About The Adventure

Hiking and running local trails from Edale in the Peak District. Exploring away from the crowded trails. I love a tucked away flask & picnic spot with a great view. Career coaching outdoors on these trails too!

      An alternative route up Mam Tor from Edale, avoiding the popular paths & roads, and including a couple hidden gems. The hidden pool near the start of the walk is nicely tucked away - a great spot to look out for wildlife while enjoying a brew. This south-east route up Mam Tor is steep but really rewarding for the views.

    1. About The Adventure

      This is a short hike but a great challenge! It can be very wet underfoot up Golden Clough as water flows down from different directions. The path is rough and sometimes disappears but as long as you follow the main flow of water you'll be fine. Remember to look back at the view while you're hiking up and take your time as it is very steep. The path up eventually reached another path and here you have plenty of options. You can go left to see more of Kinder Scout, go up to the top of rocky Ringing Roger, or go right for a path that takes you back to Edale.You can see my story highlights on Instagram: instagram.com/about.the.adventure

      Brilliant hike with loads of amazing rock formations! There are a few boggy patches but they are not too bad in summer. We followed a path pretty much all the way, just gets a bit sketchy from Kinder Gates over to Crowden Tower so map and compass definitely required for this hike.

      A short hike with awesome views towards Hope Valley, taking you away from the main paths of Grindsbrook. The sheep will be surprised to see you.

    1. About The Adventure

      This was the first time I'd explored the northern edge. There's a good path, sometimes lost for a few seconds among rocks. Quite boggy and damp after some rain. We took a shortcut to Kinder Downfall which requires a map and compass bearing from Nether Red Brook to Kinder Downfall - there is no path for this section. But you can continue along the northern edge path. We also took a bearing from Kinder Gates over towards Crowden Tower to eventually bring us back to Edale.
