Out of all the runs I do this one is my favourite – it is my go to regular route! Mainly because it takes you along some quieter, less busy tracks in the Peaks and I also really enjoy the climbs.
Again you can park anywhere on the loop – I tend to start in Hope as this give you a relatively flat few miles to start so you can warm up before the steep climb up Mam Tor. For me the sections of the route I enjoy the most are the descent from Hollins Cross (fondly known as ‘The Ankle Snapper’!) and the section from The Nab to Hope Cross.
