The Peak District is both 'mighty and manageable'. It offers summits, scrambles and stories on a scale that works perfectly for a family day out. This walk's great for younger children and new navigators (of any age). First, we'll look at some map skills so that you can learn to find your way. Then you'll take us to the rocky outcrops of Robin Hood's Stride where legend says Robin Hood leapt between the rocks! No leaping off rocks for us, but there will be hidden treasure - see if you can use your new navigation skills to find it! We'll provide a map compass for an enjoyable day where learning is easy and fun!
- 4 miles (8km) with 700 feet (200m) of climbing - a few climbs but spread through the day
- We can shorten it for younger ones - to 1.5 miles with 300 feet (100m) of climbing
- We normally meet at 0945 at in Youlgreave, near Bakewell, and should be finished between 1400 - 1500
- Subject to agreement you may be able to bring your family dog too!
