This guide covers walks around Castleton, Edale and the Upper Derwent Valley, in the northern part of the Peak District National Park. Although there are no truly high peaks in the area, there are steep climbs onto Kinder Scout and up the wooded slopes around the reservoirs of the Derwent Valley, and long walks through bleak moorland scattered with tors. Around Castleton the contours are softer, but there are good ridge walks and paths leading to the surrounding caverns. Walks range from 1 to 11 miles (1.5-18kms). Routes include Ladybower, Hayfield to Kinder Scout, Rushup Edge and Stanage Edge.
