Welcome to Peak District Walks

‘Peak District Walks’ is designed for anyone who wants to go walking or hiking in the Peak District National Park.

Whether you’re a beginner, new to the area or you have been walking for years. If you love walking and have a passion for getting outdoors this is the place for you to plan your walks.

Whether you’re looking for short walks, long walks or maybe waterfall walks, we have plenty for you to choose from.

Our walks are perfect for everyone, from solo walkers, to groups of friends and family or maybe even you’ve been challenged to find a walk for your work colleagues to do!

Peak District Walks are all individual walks that have been personally walked by Becky Angell from Becky the Traveller. She gets out in all weathers to try new walks, but always returns on the sunny days to get good photos! New to the team is Ben Hales who has hiked all over the Peak District on various challenges.

New walks are added weekly so if you can’t find what you want be sure to come back soon. Or better still drop me an email and I will try and find a walk for you.

Keep reading now to find the perfect walk for you.

how to choose your walk

There are four different ways you can choose the walk that’s right for you.

  1. Do you have a walk that you’d like to do, maybe Mam Tor, Chrome Hill, Shutlingsloe or Kinder Scout? Then search by walks.
  2. Do you know how far you’d like walk, choose a short, medium, long or multi-day walk. Select a distance.
  3. Looking for a specific distance, you can now choose your walk by exact mileage. Select search by mileage
  4. Where are you planning to visit? Search by nearest location to find the best walk for you.

family walks in the Peak District

We have some great family walks in the Peak District, from shorter walks to medium ones but with a few fun things for kids to enjoy. 

If you’re looking for a family walk then check out the Chee Dale stepping stones walk or maybe Robin Hood’s Stride – both great walks that all the family will enjoy.

We also have a range of routes that offer more adventure without too many miles, perfect for children who want to climb their first mountain (or feel like they have!) Check out the Chrome Hill walk, Grindslow Knoll (with a short scramble) or Thorpe Cloud for some uphill hikes with the best views in the Peak District!

Here are a few routes that you might like to try.

best long hikes in the Peak District

Love doing longer and more challenging hikes? I do enjoy a good long walk so you’ll be able to find a range of long circular Peak District walks, as well as a few linear ones too.

You can find a range of long walks and hikes here or simply search via the long walks category.

Edale Skyline walk – Second time I used ‘Peak District Walks’ (after using it for 9 Edge Walk). I found this walk and decided why not do 2 challenges in 1 week!
 
Once again the walk did not disappoint, make sure you have plenty of battery power for lots of photos!!
 
Thanks for all the hiking inspo! This website is now on my bookmarks
