Thanks for all the positive responses so far! We’re really glad that you all think this is a good idea. Watch this space, the first few walks should be available within the next couple of weeks. 🙂

Good idea. Now what about something for wheelchairs or electric scooters that the disabled use. Most walks include styles or crossing streams which is also a problem for push chairs. We miss out on so much.

Great idea

Sounds like a brilliant idea 😁

Brilliant idea

Fab idea! When we went to Baslow Edge the other day, we were going to do a loop passed the tree line and farm track, but my youngest, aged 12 , wanted to go back the same way as he liked clambering on the rocks. Just the simple things entertain them!🙂 Also, via a sweet shop (Tissington), or even tea rooms or pub! Mine love walking to food!!🙂

Fabulous!

Great idea- also good for older people not so good on their legs!

Can’t wait for these! 👍🏼

If they are child friendly they will be Granny friendly as well ! Hooray !

My boys loved going to "Rocks" or Mother Cap, we could lose a whole day scrambling over them 🙂

Get them involved the earlier the better.

Nikki Barrow this is probably glen & my level.

Thank you

Brilliant can’t wait

Promising

Sounds good

That's exactly what I'm after 💪thank you 👏👏👏👏

A book?

Louis Wales * No children were harmed in the development of these walks. 🤣 they obviously don't have a child as clumsy as ours 🙈 Something to follow and try out 🙂

Paul Radford keep an eye on this for Jenny

Matt Flynn little gingers dad might like this

Jonathan Alsop great idea 😊

Every 2 weeks we choose a photograph taken by a member of our Facebook Group to feature on our main page. This beautiful shot was taken by Simon Walkden and shows his friend Zaf Ali, who ran 31 miles through the Peak District during the night of the Summer Solstice. Here he is with a triumphant finish running down the unmistakeable Winnats Pass as the sun rises. Please show Simon and Zaf some appreciation for this wonderful photograph - and for their very impressive achievement!

Edale been camping there for years wot a wonderful place

Edale. Went up there when we stayed at YH as a school party back in 1964

Edale. Beside the nags head. A great pub.

Edale - have walked that path - did it is 16 days with only 2 quarter days of rain - brilliant

Edale!

Edale ...the great paradise

Edale seen that sign many a time

Edale, walked The Pennine Way back in 1985!😀🥾

270 odd miles from my sister 😂

Edale.......the Beginning or The End.....depending on which way you go!

Did that walk twice from Scotland to Edale, did it that way cos we had our eleven year old daughter walking with us, thought better for her if she was walking to home

Edale. By the Nags Head pub.

Yup. Edale.

It’s 268 miles from Kirk yetholm easy

Edale.

Did you know that 1/3 of the City of Sheffield is within the Peak District National Park? It is the only major city in the UK to have a National Park within its boundary.  Our Peak District Voice this week comes from The Outdoor City, the Official Tourist Board for Sheffield... have a look at what this gateway city to the Peaks has to offer...  https://letsgopeakdistrict.co.uk/no1-sheffield-the-outdoor-city/

Looking forward to our stay in Flouch in January!

I love Sheffield.

Ah it’s the top end that’s included. Not much “city” there then.

Is this correct? The government website suggests otherwise www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/visiting/maps/pdmap

Dani....a FB site to follow x

Is that why I was told catch a particular bus, when I wanted the train station, and ask for the moor. I was told, here you are, this is your stop. I hadn't realised that the moor was in the centre of town 😲

A fraction of Sheffield may be in the ‘boundary’.... but let’s be honest, it belongs to the county of Derbyshire 🙂

Sunset from the summit of Mam Tor, such a wonderful place, great views in all directions, and always a lovely strong breeze that gives you that rush and feel good factor.

The High Peak Trail runs for 17 miles between Dowlow near Buxton and High Peak Junction near Cromford. It follows the route of the former High Peak Railway Line, opened in 1831, and is a great place for walking, cycling and riding, offering spectacular views of the White Peak.
