The Pennine Way

The Pennine Way is an English National Trail (although it finishes just across the Scottish border!) that runs the length of the Pennines from Edale to Kirk Yetholm covering 268 miles through the Peak District and Northwards through the Yorkshire Dales and Northumberland National Park towards the Scottish borders.

The route is considered one of the toughest walking routes in the UK and takes most walkers the best part of a week, or longer, to complete in its entirety. That said, it’s not compulsory to do it all in one go and the first sections starting in Edale and on to Kinder provide some very accessible and easily navigated walking in stunning scenery.
