About the event
Guided group walk from Edale village up to the eastern edge of Kinder Scout and across the plateau where you'll see:
- peat groughs
- Moors For The Future dams
- large gritstone boulders
- a trig point
The maximum group number is 6 people and we will walk at an easy conversational pace. As a leader I encourage everyone to enjoy connecting with nature through a sensory experience. There's no pressure to engage in conversation for the whole walk.
Distance: approximately 7 miles
Terrain: steep sections, rocky underfoot on trails, wet and boggy on the moor.
