Brief Description

From the car park we go along Valley Rd., pass the camp site, to Bowden Bridge. Continue along Kinder Rd. to the second gate to Kinder Reservoir. From there it is a steady climb of 700ft. to Broad Clough and Kinderlow End (We skirt it, don't climb it!). An undulating walk then to meet the old track leading from Edale to Hayfield. It's then downhill for most of the way but be aware that the first half mile downhill is very stony and walking poles are recommended. We then head back to Bowden Bridge and retrace our steps along the river to Hayfield. On a clear day the views are superb.
