Autumn Hiking in the Peaks
We have booked YHA Edale in the Dark Peaks for an autumn weekend of walking and cycling in the Peak District National Park. Edale is at the start of the Pennine Way and is ideal for hikes direct from the hostel. Our group has walked all routes throughout the Peaks and provides fully guided trips to all parts of the UK. On Saturday we leave the YHA to hike up the Edale Skyline route onto the unforgettable landscape of Kinder Scout. This dramatic plateau was the setting for start of the Right to Roam protests in the 1930s which created the hiking movement in England. We can visit the Kinder Downfall waterfall and descend by Jacobs Ladder. We aim to have a group meal in the hostel in the evening. · On Sunday we plan a shorter walk including a visit to the impressive Peveril Castle. There is also an option for cycling at Derwent (5 miles from hostel) with cycle hire at the centre. This super cycle route takes you around three beautiful reservoirs in the Derbyshire Peak District. Entire route is on car-free tracks with café at hire centre. Group will depart for London mid afternoon. Refreshments - · Hostel offers all meals and also has self-catering kitchen.

All our walks are researched and selected to provide top views, lots of variety and historic features with a great pub to visit on route.

We have long experience of camping trips; all our sites allow camp fires and bbqs. We also book sites in the Malvern Hills and Cotswold (great walking areas) where the lack of YHAs mean camping is the best way to enjoy the countryside; we have a stock of modern tents & other equipment to lend out to new campers.
