Fantastic ridge walk which can be a short couple of hours or extended to a full day. To make it easy start at the car park at Mam Nick and head toward Lose Hill.

I have done this walk many times starting from Castleton YHA and headed up losehill with groups of school children. The first accent is the most difficult but nothing major and climbing the steps to the summit of losehill is a great feeling knowing that it's relatively easy going across the ridge to man tor. No matter the weather it... More

Excellent views all the way around, and with some history at the top, the hike is totally worth the sweat equity

This is the best time to visit to avoid the crowds, I only met up with 5or6 other parties. The snow was light but a few inches deep on the summit adding to the character of the hills. I did the 8 mile circular from Hope and was able to get back before nightfall by walking quite briskly. This place... More

We walked the Great Ridge on a very windy and slightly rainy November day. Fortunately, the cloud base was high enough that we benefitted from the great views. The trail is well paved and despite being poorly prepared, we couldn't get lost. We dropped down into Castleton, then up Cave Dale and back to Mam Tor. Well recommended.

We parked in Castleton and went to the visitor centre where the lady recommended us a 4.5 mile hike up to Losehill to Mam Tor then back to Castleton. This was stunning but not easy to follow, needed to use google maps in beginning and ending and also was not an easy hike! Lots of steep hikes, took around 4... More

We walked here as part of a longer journey, and found a wide stepped route to the top. I could see there were car parks nearby that families had made use of. Some of the best views to be seen. Can walk either way along the ride way for more scenic (and windy ) panoramic views.

We walked from Edale to Mam Tor, Hollins Cross and Losehill. It's well worth the relatively short climb up to Mam Tor and the paths are very good all the way along - some are paved which made for very easy walking. We were lucky that we had a clear, calm, sunny but cold day and we had views for... More

This is a beautiful walk and often not too busy unlike some other popular walks, especially if you walk in the week or quieter periods. The views are stunning. From Lose Hill, you can view across to Edale and further. The view from Back Tor is incredible too!
