Kinder Scout Moorland Edge Walk Details

This route from Edale follows the Pennine Way initially as far as Edale Cross, before following the good path along the edge of the Kinder Plateau. It then descends to Edale via Grindsbrook Clough.

The rock sculptures, such as the Wool Packs, are a particular feature of this route, and can be quite unnerving in thick mist if not expected! There’s also extensive restoration work being undertaken to restore the peat bog habitat.
