Best Walking Routes in the Peak District
The Peak District is prime hiking territory and offers a multitude of trails to follow. Shorter, circular walks are ideal for a leisurely afternoon stroll, whilst longer ones require a fair bit of planning and care. If you, for example, plan to climb Kinder Scout, make sure that you have maps and a compass with you and pay special attention to the weather forecast. Here are a short selection of some favourite walks that are both beautiful and gentle. Pack a picnic, don't forget to take enough water and enjoy the beautiful countryside.
A 5 mile circular walk starts in Matlock town centre which then continues via Oker Hill, an excellent viewpoint, and Darley Bridge before returning to Matlock.
Start your walk in Bakewell and follow the river Wye along an old and now disused railway track. The whole walk is 6 miles long, but you should plan for plenty of time if you want to visit famous Haddon Hall on the way.
Explore the Trans Pennine Trail, a long-distance, coast to coast hiking and cycling path that passes close to Glossop. The trail is well marked and passes through many scenic villages and towns from where you can take public transport back to your dog friendly accommodation in the Peak District.
