Walking in the Peak District is some of finest in the UK. The National Park suffers from a split personality with its contrasting White and Dark Peaks. Within easy distance from Manchester, Sheffield and the Midlands there is much for the visitor to see. The contrast between quiet limestone dales and wild upland moors provides the basis for a diverse range of Peak District walks with scenic variety the keynote. Peak District Walking Guide
The County of Cheshire offers a range of walks to suit all abilities. The Sandstone hills between Frodsham and Helsby offer fine walks with some excellent views across the Mersey Estuary. The flat land of the Cheshire Gap is dominated by pleasant rural farmland and easy walking. To the east of the county the land rises to the western moors of the Peak District National Park including the highest point at Shining Tor (559 metres) on the boundary with Derbyshire. It is in this area that most of the more challenging walks can be found with wild country and superb panoramas from the high ground.
