General information

A festive walk from Edale.
This is not a long walk in distance (6 miles), but there is a steep ascent of 1200 feet and a steep descent back to Edale. The weather may well be cold and wet and the conditions on the Kinder edges may be difficult at this time of year.  If you are not used to winter hill walking and are worried you might struggle this one might not be for you! However we have never cancelled this walk, whatever the weather, as and it's often a good chance to test out you winter clothes (good waterproof jacket and trousers). We will not tackle the hills at too fast a pace so if you are a slow but confident hill walker, that will be fine.

Equipment: walking boots, waterproof jacket and trousers, warm clothing. Trekking pole(s) recommended if normally used.
