A stunning walk with amazing views, from the popular outdoors village of Hathersage. The walk starts off fairly gently through the valley and woods before climbing up to the famous gritstone edge of Stanage. We walk along Stanage Edge, with a chance to visit Robin Hood's Cave, and "Keira Knightley Rock" for some great Instagram locations before then continuing on to Burbage with its ancient hill fort. The walk then heads back to Hathersage through moorland, fields and woods.
The walk includes a mixture of good tracks and smaller footpaths and one fairly long hill up to Stanage Edge from Hathersage, a climb of about 200 m (600 ft). At any time of year there could be some muddy sections. On top of Stanage Edge the path becomes rougher as we approach the trig point, the last part of which includes some optional clambering around on the rocks to reach the trig point. The paths over Burbage pass over a couple of rocky outcrops which involve some care whilst walking down and around the rocks. The remainder of the walk is on good paths, with a couple of short steeper descents towards the end.
