Nice short walk up the hill, which I've done it a couple of times. Not too exciting but fairly achievable, with a good 360 view on the top level as a reward. Good fun.

Well worth the walk up to Solomon’s Temple; a 19th century folly. There’s just the folly up there but the views from the top are lovely. Just what you need after all the traffic in Buxton. You can park (car park charge) at the bottom...More

The temple can be seen towering above Buxton from certain vantage points. We climbed to the temple from The Caravan and Camping Club campsite. Amazing views of the Derbyshire landscape.

Our dog loves the walk up to the temple through the woodland. The hill gets the lungs working and you meet quite a few people. Fantastic autumn colour this year. We were lucky and had a clear sunny day.

Several footpaths from the car park at pools cavern lead up to Solomon’s temple. It’s a good and easy walk with lovely views over Buxton. It is a good walk for dogs to run free and chase squirrels.

I trudge up here as often as I can and the views never fail to inspire. Snow, sun, wind - the weather's always changing so no visit is ever quite the same.
