Public Transport based walk with Katherine Hamlett & Stu Edwards.
Rushup Edge has been described by those in the know (who shall remain nameless to avoid unfair publicity...!) as "the best ridge walk in Britain". Whilst everyone will have their favourites, this route certainly provides some of the most breathtaking views of the Peak District and the chance to take in a number of well-known waypoints of the area. The first climb of the day covers the bulk of the ascent and takes us directly up to the ridge to make the most of the vistas. Paths are generally good underfoot with occasional muddy sections depending on the weather. The day's efforts will be all wrapped up with the ultimate walkers' pub at the end!
