Walk Details
Wonderful for taking in the many Peak District habitats, this walk will lead you alongside the Ladybower Reservoir, through farmland and up steep wooded cloughs, before emerging high on top of the moors, with panoramic views of the Derwent Valley and much of the Dark Peak area.

Spot local wildlife and enjoy beautiful vistas. Look out for mountain hares and golden plovers on your walk across the farmland and moorland.
