Guided Derbyshire Six Dales challenge walk | Peak District | TeamWalking

A beautiful walk through six limestone Derbyshire Dales
43.5 km (27 miles) – 1,100 metres of ascent – 12 hours

The Derbyshire Six Dales challenge walk is a beautiful route through six stunning limestone valleys in the heart of the Derbyshire Peak District.

Starting and finishing in the lovely village of Hartington, the route takes in part of the High Peak Trail, the villages of Monyash, Middleton and Biggin, and six limestone dales including three National Nature Reserves of Lathkill Dale, Long Dale and Biggin Dale. Most of the route follows field, woodland, riverside  and valley paths and tracks.

Derbyshire Dales:
Lathkill Dale
Bradford Dale
Long Dale / Gratton Dale
Biggin Dale
Wolfscote Dale
Beresford Dale

It is a demanding walk due to its length (43.5 km / 27 miles) and so must be approached with preparation and training, but it is also an rewarding walk that will be remembered for many years.
