‘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 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 Peak District walks.
We have short walks or long walks, walks with the best views, waterfall walks or cave walks and even some fantastic hikes with scrambles. Whatever walk you’re looking for we have plenty for you to choose from.
Start with our list of best walks in the Peak District if you’re finding it hard to pick a walk.
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, a qualified Mountain Leader from Becky the Traveller. She gets out in all weathers to try new walks, but always returns on 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.
