    Route Description for Lady Canning’s Plantation and Burbage Moor Walk

    Most often associated with its mountain bike trails, Lady Canning’s Plantation and Burbage Moor also offer great opportunities to walk the rugged moor and experience spectacular views across the Peak District. Setting out from the village of Ringinglow next to The Norfolk Arms, follow the trail through the forested expanse of the Lady Canning’s Plantation to the southwest, keeping an eye out for any passing bikers as you enjoy the peaceful woodland atmosphere. Eventually, you will exit the cover of the trees and make your way across the moor toward the escarpment known as Burbage Edge. Here, you will have some spectacular views across the valley towards the iconic Higger Tor and the Iron Age fort atop Carl Wark.
