Adventure to the Peak District

June 24 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm


Join Sherwood Nordic Walking and Aspire Nordic Walking for a day out exploring the Peak District.

Monsal Trail, Bakewell and Haddon Explorer Walk:

Richard at Aspire will take us on a beautiful Nordic Walking loop in the heart of the Peak District.  We shall start and finish our walk at Hassop Station (https://www.hassopstation.co.uk) which enjoys plentiful parking, good toilet facilities and a wonderful cafe with a gift shop where we can start with a coffee and finish with lunch.
We shall head west on the Monsal Trail (https://www.peakdistrict.gov.uk/visiting/places-to-visit/trails/monsaltrail) before taking the old packhorse trail across to and providing a lovely view of the charming town of Bakewell, famed for its unique pudding (https://www.bakewellpuddingshop.co.uk).  We will briefly track the River Wye crossing it twice on the town’s famous bridges before passing through the agricultural centre on the trail of the Wye and out to the open fields leading to the famous Haddon (https://haddonestate.co.uk) and Chatsworth Estates (https://www.chatsworth.org).  By now we will be well warmed up and into our stride which makes it the perfect time to take the incline to the highpoint of our walk across a shoulder of land dividing the two estates and ending with a beautiful view back down the valley to Bakewell.
From here we will wend our way down bridleways and along farm tracks to Coombs Road viaduct where we shall rejoin Monsal Trail at its end for the final mile and a half under bridges, through Bakewell Station and back to Hassop where we can recharge and socialise over lunch.
The majority of the terrain for this walk is even and firm under foot, even in Britain’s notoriously changeable climate.  There are one or two short sections of rocky terrain but these are easily tackled at a steady pace with the aid of our trusty poles.  The route is just over 7 miles with approximately 400 metres of ascent and descent spread across the walk.  The largest ascent will cover the majority of the 200 metres but gains its height gradually with plenty of opportunities to stop and admire the surroundings as needed.
Distance: 7 miles
Ascent: 400 metres
Pace: Moderate
