About this Event

5th April 2020. 8:00am

TRANSPORT INCLUDED pick-up from Manchester (Chorlton Street opposite coach station)

Kinder Scout is the highest point in the Peak District. It boasts unforgettable views, unique moorland and even a waterfall. It offers some of the most challenging but rewarding walks in the Peak District, where you’ll encounter gentle streams, dark gritstone, steep rocks to scramble up, unique peat and the glorious Kinder Downfall.

 Kinder Scout is also one of the most significant areas in the National Park as the site of the 1932 Mass Trespass - when ramblers from nearby cities peacefully protested on what was then private land, contributing to the change in legislation allowing people to freely walk on access land. The Mass Trespass was a key event in the campaign for open access to moorland in Britain which eventually led to the formation of Britain's National Parks; the Peak District was the first National Park, founded on 17th April 1951.

 Today, this stunning moorland plateau is a walker's paradise: at 2,087ft above sea level it offers some of the most breath-taking views in the country.

It takes approximately 6 hours to walk 10.5km round.

This event is in total 10.5 km and a great overall day! Once at the start of the hike, you will be led by trained mountain leaders to the summit of Kinder Scout.

A general level of fitness is required as you will be walking for 5-6 hours at a steady pace. We welcome anyone to join us! We have guided all abilities to the top of Kinder Scout and I believe there is no better achievement than stepping out of your comfort zone!
