Route Description for Barber Booth and Edale Head Walk
The Barber Booth and Edale Head Trail in Peak District National Park is a great walking circuit that will expose you to a variety of terrain including open tracts of farmlands, rugged moors, undulating hills, and peaceful riverside settings. The route partially passes through Kinder Scout National Nature Reserve, meaning you will likely see some increased foot traffic. Be sure to arrive early to secure parking.
