A fantastic 9 mile walk, this was feature on ITV as one of the top 100 walks in Britain. With Impressive views and unique and memorable landscapes around every corner, I can see why this walk was included in the ITV's list. This appears to be a Peak District Walk and so you probably won't be alone.

The walk starts from popular village of Edale. There is plenty of parking with a charge here and public toilets. There are a couple of pubs, cafe and a local shop as well as a couple camp sites and a railway station.

From the village head up the hill, under the railway bridge and past the Rambler Inn towards the church. Turn right at the end of the road before the private drive and across the wooden bridge. After a short way bear right and head towards the Nab.

Follow the path up to Nether Tor, around to Upper Tor. Then onto Crowden Tower towards Edale Head. At Edale Cross the trail turns and heads back to Edale via the step steps of Jacob's Tower to join the Pennine Way.

    I was glad that I had downloaded this trail, as the terrain at the top of the plateau can be highly treacherous and confusing. I did this hike in a wet and windy morning with very poor visibility. Beautiful walk even in cold and rainy days.

    Wonderful walk. Vigilance is required, especially in winter with snow, since there's quite a lot of ice and the paths can be hidden.
