Highlights include: Kinder Scout and the weird and wonderful rock formations of the Woolpacks, the 'shivering mountain' of Mam Tor, the Great Ridge, the battle of Lose Hill and Win Hill, Peak District's finest viewpoint, ancient Hope Cross and its Roman Road, and the Madwoman's Stones!

It is a demanding walk (21 miles) and so must be approached with preparation and training, but it is also an rewarding walk that will be remembered for many years for its variety of landscapes, terrain and amazing views.
