Route Outline

This pleasant walk lies just outside the boundary of the Peak District National Park but still includes some excellent scenery and two picturesque villages. The walk also contains a short section of the High Peak Trail and a rocky summit. The start is the car park overlooking Carsington Water (grid ref. SK249528) on the south side of the B5035 Ashbourne to Wirksworth Road near the village of Carsington. Please note it is not the car park adjacent to the main visitor centre for Carsington Water.
