Peak District: the best walking routes in Derbyshire
Britain's first national park is today quite possibly the most famous among guests from all over. With its beautiful nature and heritage, the Peak District is a spot to revive and learn. The National Park Authority protects the area by educating its visitors about how to care for the environment. While hiking up the greatest peaks of White Peak, Dark Peak or South West Peak, watch out for the millstones, they’ll lead the way.
The Peak District National Park is an ideal destination for active holidays. It is greatly accessible from villages like Bakewell, Castleton and Hathersage. To increase the sustainability of tourism, the national park has an elaborate infrastructure. Public transport brings you almost everywhere, only your feet will bring you farther.
The hills of the national park run through the landscape in gentle and striking elevations - both ambitious hikers and pleasure walkers will find their preferred route. The mountains are not high, but some are quite steep.
The Monsal trail, for example, is highly accessible for everyone and leads through spectacular limestone dales. On this route, not the exhaustion will leave you breathless but the lovely landscape surrounding you. If this is not enough of a challenge, hike up Kinder Scout, the highest point (2,087 ft) of Derbyshire, or enjoy a circular walk to Lose Hill and Win Hill, two iconic peaks in the District.
