Scenic Lookout
“This is a 6 ½ mile walk starting in Castleton and walking through some of the most admired and stunning parts of the Peak District. Known to be one of the best ridge walks in the country, this Peak District walk gives stunning views over Edale, Hope Valley and even the edge of Kinder Scout. There is also an option to extend this route to an 8 mile walk to include a stroll by the river on the way back. This walk starts in the main car park at Castleton, and passes both Treak Cliff and Blue John Cavern, which are unique show caverns and two of the most-loved attractions in the Peak District. If you have time they are definitely worth a pre or post-walk visit! From Castleton this walk takes you to the summit of Mam Tor, another very famous part of the Peak District. Also known as the ‘Shivering Mountain’, the views from the top of Mam Tor are some of the best in the country and iconic in Peak District landscape photography. From Mam Tor you’ll walk up to the top of Back Tor and then onto Lose Hill Pike, all of which have superb views of some of the most idyllic parts of the Peak District. The slightly longer route takes you back to Castleton along the riverside, via Hope. Both Castleton and Hope are wonderful villages in the Peak District, perfect for enjoying tea and cake or even some traditional pub grub! One of the most well-known pubs in Castleton is the Cheshire Cheese Inn. Please see the attached PDF for more details, descriptions and a map of the walking route. Always remember to take a map and compass with you and come wearing a good pair of walking boots”

Park
“At a knee-knocking 1,200ft, Tree Top Adventure at Buxton is one of the highest Go Ape courses in the UK. Steadily ascending through the canopy, you'll climb, clamber and conquer this goliath of a high ropes course in 2-3 hours. Built high in the hilltops of the UK's largest National Park, our Peak District location is BIG on adventure. Get your heart-pumping with one of our biggest Tarzan swing drops. You'll leap off the platform into stomach-turning freefall before being swung into our giant cargo net (psst, we have alternative obstacles for budding adventurers)”
