Peak District

Peaks 2016 Map Peaks 2016 Logo Peaks 2016 Date

The Peak District is home to some absolutely stunning scenery and more than lives up to its reputation as one of Britain’s most inspiring National Parks. It is also home to some equally stunning climbs, including the moorland plateau, Kinder Scout. Part of the moor, at 636 metres (2,087 ft), is the highest point in the Peak District, the highest point in Derbyshire and the highest point in the East Midlands. Join us in September and experience the rugged beauty of the Peaks for yourself!

25km Route

We leave the Event Village with all other routes and head straight through Castleton. We will then get a feel of the beautiful Peak District countryside as we arrive at Hollins Cross, followed by walking through Edale. As we exit Edale we leave all the other routes behind and continue towards Nether Booth Farm and the Ladybower Reservoir. The route will join the reservoir path and follow the reservoir before heading back to the Event Village.

We leave the Event Village with all other routes and head straight through Castleton. We will then get a feel of the beautiful Peak District countryside as we arrive at Hollins Cross, followed by walking through Edale.

We will descend into Hayfield before following distinguished paths until we reach Peak Forest. Here, we will leave the 75k and 100km behind.

The next bit of the route is along quiet country roads and through small villages in the Peak District before reaching the magnificent Ladybower Reservoir.

At the Dam by Fariholmes, we leave the 75k route and commence a beautiful section of the route, around the Derwent Reservoir. This section at night, lit by head torches, is beautifully eerie. After returning back to Fairholmes, we cross the Dam and return to Hope along country roads and back to the Event Village.

Just had to thank and congratulate Global Adventure Challenges for their excellent organisation of, the setting up of, the stewarding of, guides, support and everything that made this weekend’s TrekFest The Peaks Challenge an incredible experience.
Thanks again to all the people that made this walk work and I hope my singing whilst walking on Kinder Scout didn’t spoil anyone’s day! – Stewart Elston
