Good paths, great views and stunning scenery make this one of the most popular walks in the Peak District. The drawback is that its popularity makes it rather crowded. It can exposed if the weather turns nasty - go on a clear day.

Have done the walk more times than I remember. Not to be missed and a great way to get your kids out and about.

The good thing about this walk is you can park nearby and choose the length of walk to your ability. We walked for about 2 hours before making our way to Blur John cavern. Remember sun cream even up here.

This is a great walk with some lovely views, though sadly as it is a great walk it is a victim of it's own success and is very busy, in fact, overcrowded with walkers queueing at certain points. If you are not a born navigator...More

One of my favourite short ridge walks. Beautiful views, particularly looking towards the Edale valley and Kinder Scout.

Not an easy walk on a windy day but well worth it with plenty of picnic stops to take in the panoramic views

There's a car park right underneath it, if you put Mam Tor into the Sat nav it should take you there. It does get quite busy with coaches but mid week should be fine. There is a charge for using it.
Hello, is this suitable for a 4 year old?

Depending on whether , has numerous steps up from car park too, really depends on how much they like walking . Don't advise walking up in windy conditions!
