Highlights

Clear your head and get in the Christmas spirit on this fabulous walk in the Peak District. This walk operates for groups of between 4 and 10 people.
The walk starts out below Mam Tor with a steady climb of about 150m (600ft) up to the top of the famous Mam Tor (or Shivering Mountain) at a height of 517m. From here we'll experience "one of the top ten views in England".
Next we follow along the Great Ridge towards Hollin's Cross, from where we continue along the ridge to Back Tor for another great view point. We continue on the ridge and also have an option of adding on to the stunning Winnats Pass and the old abandoned road below Mam Tor for those who wish.
After the walk you're free if you wish to enjoy the remainder of the day in beautiful Castleton.
COVID-19 Guidance All our events are approved as "Good to Go" Covid-secure by Visit England. We plan to start operating again from 29th March in line with the schedule published by the government. Initially groups of up to 6 or two households will be able to exercise in the outdoors. We expect the most popular areas will be very busy during the first two weeks (Easter Holidays) so our activities will initially be selected to cover the quieter locations that provide those great wide open experiences and we will only be taking new bookings for private individuals/groups for these first two weeks. From 12th April we will return to running our full range of activities including open group bookings that individuals can book on in addition to private/bespoke bookings. From 17th May: Larger groups will be able to meet in the outdoors.
Our "Book with Confidence" reschedule/refund guarantee continues to be in place for bookings made up to 14th March (see below). After this date we will still maintain the additional flexibility to reschedule your booking at any time if needed as a result of COVID-19 restrictions.
If you'd like to discuss options before booking please contact us. Thanks, Paul Smith, myGuidedWalks.

Itinerary

The walk is mostly on good tracks and smaller footpaths and includes 2 fairly short but steep hills, and a longer climb of about 250m (900ft). At any time of year there could be some muddy sections and some sections of the path are rough and stony. There is a fairly long descent from Hollin's Cross which is a little steep in places and can be slippery when wet so footwear with good grip is required.

This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:

  • Charity fundraising
  • Corporates
  • Families
  • Hen / Stag parties
