As well as tackling the peaty wilderness of Kinder Scout and Bleaklow Head, you will also do a fair bit of climbing with the second biggest ascent of the way. However the views are well-worth the effort.

Turn-by-turn directions

These maps and routes are designed to be used in conjunction with our traditional documentation. We have recently embarked on a conversion initiative to bring the two elements together, and this itinerary will be covered in due course.

In the meantime, using the two elements alongside each other should go a long way to ensure you have a safe, enjoyable and problem free day.
