Experience the beautiful countryside, walking & cycling in the Peak District
So many people visit Buxton and the Peak District area to enjoy walking and cycling around the beautiful countryside and there is something for everyone here, whether you just want a leisurely paced, easy walk on flat footpaths, to challenging trails high up on the Moorside peaks. You can explore national or local trails or simply take advantage of the miles of open access land or rights of way available around the district.
For the more experienced walkers, there’s plenty of challenges to keep you coming back for more, such as walking the Pennine Way National Trail which follows the Pennine chain along the rugged backbone of England, from Edale, across Kinder Scout, to the highest point in the Peak District at 636 metres (2,087 ft).
You can purchase local maps at the Old Hall Hotel from reception for £3.00, including for Lathkill Dale, The Roaches, Hartington, Dove Dale and Goyt Valley.
For the avid cyclist or mountain biker, the Peak district is the perfect setting for a good days’ riding. A cycle hire and delivery service is available from Peak Tours (including kids cycle hire).
