Hill Walking & Mountaineering

Easily accessible and a healthy leisure time activity with a view!

Being in the heart of the Peak District National Park we are an ideal starting point for many excellent walks. Mam Tor – the famous shivering mountain overlooks the Centre and is a relatively straight forward half-day objective, which can be extended to take in the popular ridge eastwards to Lose Hill.

Learn to navigate, improve your navigation skills or simply have a guided walk. We also offer expeditions that would include an overnight away from the Centre either in tents or at a simple bunkhouse with groups planning and preparing their meals.

Taking things even further we have an annual trip to experience the Scottish mountains in winter. See our winter skills courses.

Why?  There is a great sense of achievement in climbing to the top of a summit. Hill walking gets people off tarmac and gives them an opportunity to explore wild and natural landscapes.
Where? Pretty much anywhere!
How long? Anything from an hour up to multiple days for those wanting to make it into an expedition.
