Blackden Brook to Kinder Plateau (Scramble + Waterfall Route)

Small waterfall and heather

This Blackden Brook route to Kinder Scout plateau is a short hike in terms of distance. But with tough terrain, a rocky scramble and lots of waterfalls to detour off-path to explore it will probably take you longer than you think!
