Lovely walk along the hills and great views to be seen. Popular route though so be ready for lots of different tourists. Cyclists, school parties, youth groups, dog walkers, runners.

Drove to the mam tor car park, fee is £3.50 upto 4 hours which seems ok. You can do a circular walk which is a really nice walk with stunning views! will have to go back to do a longer one!

Stunning views across the Peak District in all directions. Mam Tor, also known as the "Shivering" Mountain due to loose scree falling from time to time, has an Iron age hill fort on top.

We parked in the Mam Tor carpark and took the short walk up the hill to the peak. It was incredibly windy but views were brilliant.

As I recall there may be a couple of stiles further along the ridge towards Back Tor and Lose Hill, but the initial climb to Mam Tor and a fair bit of the ridge should be fine.

Yes. You can start in Castleton, walk up the Limestone Way (around the back of the castle); across to Mam Tor, along the ridge to Losehill, then back down to Castleton. There are lots and lots of variations. You could start... More
