The Edale Rocky Ridges Walk is just that - an adventurous walk along a rugged ridgeline. While out on the trail you will walk through open farmland and riverside settings before climbing up the rugged terrain of the ridge to experience amazing views overlooking the valley. There is a fair bit of climbing along this route, but the views are absolutely stunning.

Edale Rocky Ridges Walk Description

The Edale Rocky Ridges Walk is an exciting adventure through the Edale Valley that is popular due to the fact that you will climb uphill to several elevated viewpoints for amazing views overlooking the Peak District. The trail begins in the village of Edale and heads northwest along the River Noe to climb uphill to the summit of Kinder Low. From here, you will traverse the ridgeline to the east, visiting Upper Tor and Nether Tor while enjoying sweeping views across the hilly landscape. From here, you will make your descent of the hillside and meet up with Grinds Brook, following it back to the village where you began.
