Route Outline

This Peak District walk starts from the village of Hartington, which is a good centre for walkers. The village, with its green and duck pond, has a range of places to eat and usually has ample parking. On busy days you may have to use the pay and display car park on the B5054 a short way from the centre in the direction of Hulme End. This walk explores Wolfscote Dale, through which the River Dove flows and the adjoining Biggin Dale, which for most of the year is a dry valley. The landscape is typical of the 'White Peak' with limestone outcrops common in this area.
