Several footpaths from the car park at pools cavern lead up to Solomon’s temple. It’s a good and easy walk with lovely views over Buxton. It is a good walk for dogs to run free and chase squirrels.

Great walk from town_not too strenous and rewarding view when accomplished. Just wish dog walkers would keep thier pooches on a lead.

I trudge up here as often as I can and the views never fail to inspire. Snow, sun, wind - the weather's always changing so no visit is ever quite the same.

Amazing views and little history and environmental plaques dotted around. Was freezing but worth it!

Was here in September on a clear day took some amazing photos. Bit of a climb up but well worth it on a clear day, just watch out for large amounts of animal bi-products.
