trig point challenge

Winhill Pike trig point

What is the trig point challenge?

The idea of the Trig Point Challenge is not a competitive challenge. It was created as fun way to discover more of the Peak District and find some of the quieter spots that maybe you wouldn’t have thought of visiting. 

In 2019, Ben from the Peak District Walks team decided to explore more of the Peak District and to visit EVERY trig point in the Peak District National Park.

He firstly, spent hours studying the Peak District maps and collecting a list of all the trig points in the Peak District, then picked up his hiking boots and off he went!

In total, there are 88 trig points in the Peak District. Now named as the ‘Peak District Trig Point Challenge’ from fellow Instagram hikers.

To see the full list of all 88 trig points and walks to visit each trig read out detailed post here Peak District Trig Points

Here you’ll find everyone that’s completed (or completing the challenge). See details below how to add your name to the website.


Important notice

For those of you completing the Trig Point Challenge, please note for ALL trigs noted with a (P) these are located on private land and to be able to reach the trig you MUST get permission from the landowner/farmer, otherwise you are trespassing. Read more here
