Kinder Scout is the highest point in the Peak District National Park with unforgettable views, unique moorland and even a waterfall.
This was a tough walk, especially with it being the first one back. Very long and steep at times but the views along the way were.
It’s not very well sign posted from start to finish so you just have to stick to the path. From the car park we walked up towards the same way you drive in.
It’s a short walk up the road until you see a ‘public footpath’ post and then you just stick to the path. You go over two small bridges before you start climbing, first one is on your left and the other is on your right (just passed the reservoir).
From there it’s a steep climb up the hill. You could turn back around once reached the top for a shorter walk or keep following the path which eventually leads to a few nice stream and even a waterfall.
You get to a point where you feel like you’re going away from the car park but it eventually does route you back. Might become difficult for some dogs who aren’t used to the long walks and I don’t recommend taking younger kids.
Great walk though.
