overview

Taking on the Peak District is a beautiful challenge in itself but will most certainly help you prepare if you are taking part in any of our UK or International challenges. This event will give you a chance to try out your kit and test your fitness whilst taking in the views of the magnificent Peak District National Park. Our fully qualified Mountain Leaders will take you on a trek that will give you an idea of what to expect on an Action Challenge event!

itinerary

DAY 1

Please arrive in the Edale area of the Peak District after 6 pm on the first day. We will reserve a bed for you at the YHA and you will be welcomed by our staff, a hot supper and a quick briefing about the weekend ahead.

DAY 2

Based in Edale, the start of the famous Pennine Way, we head off early this morning
and trek up along Grindsbrook Clough before reaching the rugged, lonely and beautiful
Kinder Scout. We continue our walk across the Moors before returning to Edale.

DAY 3

Today is a short 5.8 mile route, which takes us through the Vale of Edale and up to the
Hollins Cross for fantastic views across the Peak District National Park. We then head
back to the YHA and set off home.
