Ridge Walk Mam Tor to Losehill image

This is an easy walk over and beyond the Peak District's most fascinating hill - Mam Tor. Steeped in history dating back to the Bronze Age, the hill is also an amazing example of geology and it is still possible to see it shaping itself today. The walk is along simple well laid footpaths most of the way and the ascents are fairly easy. You will head over Mam Tor then follow the crest of The Great Ridge who's grand profile separates the beautiful Hope and Edale Valleys until you reach its end at Lose Hill, another hill with an interesting history. This walk is an amazing mix of natural history combined with vast and beautiful panoramic views into the heart of the Peak District. This is an ideal walk when you only have a few hours.
