The High Peak, includes Kinder National Nature Reserve, the Vale of Edale and along the Snake moors to the Derwent edges. The countryside boasts heather moors, high gritstone edges and monumental windswept tors. The footpaths and bridleways can make an exhilarating day out, whatever the weather. You may spot the delicate deep pink flowers of bilberry bushes, or hear call of the curlew, and other moorland birds.
The iconic Mam Tor, is a protected Scheduled Monument that was once a hilltop fortress in the bronze age.
Kinder National Nature Reserve
This iconic place is important for climate, nature and people. Restoration work here has turned once bare peat into a landscape covered in moorland vegetation to rewet the moors and create healthy peat bogs. This is helping to store carbon, improve water quality and prevent flooding. You can follow the route of the 1932 Mass Trespass onto Kinder National Nature Reserve, retracing the steps of those early champions of access to wild places.
Join us on the first Friday of each month for a free social walk led by our knowledgeable walk leaders.
Discover breath-taking views of the Peak District, natural landscape features and the best spots for wildlife watching at Kinder, Edale and the High Peak.

Follow in the footsteps of the 500+ mass trespassers who, in 1932, walked from Hayfield to Kinder Scout in the Derbyshire Peak District to secure access rights to the countryside for all.
This low level walk through the Vale of Edale leads you through vast, open fields as well as parts of the Pennine Way, following streams and stone-flagged paths.
This 5.2-mile circular walk takes in the tree-lined avenues around Hayfield as well as the heather-covered moors of Kinder Scout and the reservoir.
This walk takes you through key Peak District habitats including farmland, alongside the Ladybower Reservoir and up to the moors for panoramic views of the High Peak.
Leave the car behind on this exhilarating walk that starts from Edale train station and takes you high up on the windswept Kinder Plateau. Plan your walk before you leave home, so that your visit is one that is enjoyable and kind to the landscape at the same time.
The wild Pennine moorlands are of international importance for their populations of breeding birds and mosaic of habitats.
Sites of particular interest include Mam Tor, with spectacular views, landslip and prehistoric settlement, the famous Snake Pass and Alport Castles in Alport Valley. Kinder Scout, where the Mass Trespass of 1932 took place, is the highest point in the Peak District and is the location for a lot of our current conservation work in the High Peak.
The Trust also owns the Dalehead Bunkhouse, Upper Booth Campsite and several farms in the beautiful Edale Valley. Edale village marks the start of the National Trail, the Pennine Way, that crosses three National Parks.
