Edale is one of the most visited locations in the country for walking. The air is fresh, the lambs a-leaping and the peaceful freedom second to none.

 

Walks start directly from the campsite and come in a variety of difficulties, from family friendly strolls to whole-day epic hikes. 

Take a look at some of the options below. There's something for everyone.​

Wider afield there is lots to see and do. For example you can visit picturesque Castleton nearby, a lovely day trip on foot via XX and Mam Tor; head over to Eyam for a bit of plague history; immerse yourself in the splendour of Chatsworth House; go hunting for wild garlic in Illam and go stone-stepping on the stunning Dovedale river... the list of what the Peak District and its surrounding villages, towns and cities can offer is endless.

For more things to do around the village speak to anyone in the campsite, cafe or shop or grab a friendly local.

Half-day Horseshoe.

Not suitable for young children. Testing.​

This is a great walk and one of our favourites. Head through the village and up to Robin's Bridge. Choose one of two routes. Head right and up Golden Clough, a scramble through the ferns to the top of the ridge, or head left and walk the path to the top of Grindslow Clough - you also have the option to navigate Grindsbrook river from bottom to top - the end is a rocky scramble but once you're at the top head round to Girndslow Knoll before heading down into the village.
