Peak District Ethels list
Created by the Peak District and South Yorkshire Countryside Charity, in 2021, there’s another challenge for all you peak baggers out there!
The ‘Ethels’ – named after Ethel Haythornthwaite.
You can read more about Ethel here.
The Countryside Charity have put together brilliant list of Peak District hills for you to visit and explore more of the Peak District, similar to our Peak District Trig Challenge.
In total, the Peak District Ethels list has 95 hills, tors, edges and trigs. It includes every hill over 400 m in the Peak District (including Mam Tor, Kinder Scout, Shining Tor), as well as some other lower iconic Peak District hills (including Thorpe Cloud, Parkhouse Hill).
Plus a few extra bonus hills that sit outside of the Peak District boundary.
You can download the ‘Ethel Ready’ App for a full list of the hills, including the height, grid reference and other information about the hill. The App is available for for android and iPhones.
Why not complete both the Trig and Ethel Challenge? If you fancy a double challenge you can combine them. Our list of 88 trigs includes 35 Ethels so by doing the Trig challenge you’re ticking off over a third of the Ethels too. Search our routes here with Trigs and Ethels included.
Here’s the A-Z list of the Peak District ‘Ethels’.
Please note, similar with the Trig Point Challenge some of these locations are on private land (marked with a P) so you’ll need to ask permission before visiting. Read more about here for more information.
I’ve added the walks that we have routes for on the website so you can visit and tick off :).
