This historical walk with stunning views starts in the village of Hayfield. We follow the route of the famous Mass Trespass which, in 1932, saw 500 walkers trespass onto private land to secure access rights to open country, for all to enjoy. The Trespass helped the establishment of the Peak District National Park in 1951, the UK's first national park. It's a poignant time to join this walk as the Park celebrates it's 70th birthday this year. 

 From our car park start, we ascend via the famous Snake Path and up William Clough. The route gets steeper as we ascend onto Kinder Edge which we follow to one of best landmarks on the highest plateau in Derbyshire - Kinder Downfall. 

We continue to follow the plateau, reaching the summit cairn at Kinder Low (633 m / 2077 ft), before descending to Hayfield via Edale's medieval cross.

There's a significant climb onto the plateau but we'll take breaks and share the history as we climb - it's so well worth it for the views! The distance is about 15 km / 9.5 miles with a height gain of 534 m / 1,800ft.

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

  • Corporates
  • Families
  • Hen / Stag parties
