Wildboar Clough, Bleaklow, and Black Hill Details

A long and enduring hike in the Peak District, ascending Bleaklow via Wildboar Clough before circling back and following the main Pennine Way trail to Black Hill. Due to the waterfalls on Wildboar Clough, and the terrain on the top of Bleaklow and Black Hill, this is a walk best done after a dry spell. It’s well worth the effort as the views are outstanding.
