Route Description for Win Hill Walk
The Win Hill Walk is a fairly straightforward loop that sets out from the village of Hope and cuts through a stretch of farmland to reach the summit of the hill; however, you will likely want to bring a GPS or trail map for the journey, as the return portion of the trip can be a little tough to navigate. Additionally, there are some fairly steep climbs on this route and portions can be blanketed in mud at certain times of the year, so come prepared with some decent walking footwear.
Setting out from the car park, head east through the village and turn left onto Edale Road. Following the road north, turn right onto Bowden Lane to cross over the River Noe and eventually arrive at the edge of Twitchill Farm. From here, follow the trail that leads beyond the farm and climbs steeply uphill across the moorland terrain to arrive at the summit of Win Hill.
Upon reaching the rocky lookout, take in the sweeping views of the surrounding countryside that include the Bamford Edge to the east and Ladybower Reservoir to the north. After taking in the views, follow the trail east to begin descending the hillside before the trail turns more towards the south to head through the open farmland. After skirting around the village of Aston, walkers will pass by the Hope railway station before following Station Road back into the village.
Take some time to explore the charming village of Hope and maybe pop into the Woodroffe Arms for a quick post-walk pint before heading home, having completed the Win Hill Walk.
