Visiting the Peak District
The Peak District is conveniently located in the heart of England. Located mainly in Derbyshire but also taking in parts of Cheshire, Greater Manchester, Yorkshire, and Staffordshire the Peak District is more than conveniently located for most. Created as a National Park in 1951, millions of people visit every year to capture the breathtaking scenery on offer or just to catch a break from 9-5 in the city. More than 20 million of us live just an hour away by car, bike or train.
There are hundreds of trails for people of all ages and abilities including 64 miles of disability-friendly trails. We haven't even been able to come close to documenting all these yet, but below are some of our favourites. For those after a challenge, Kinder Scout is the highest point in the area. Try one of our routes below approaching from Hayfield or Edale.
