We’re always keen to get out on hikes and walks in the Peak District and this weekend was no exception. The weather wasn’t too bad, not particularly warm but reasonably dry, so the kids and I set off for one of my favourite campsites, the Eric Byne Memorial Campsite near Baslow.

With the family away visiting cousins (I didn’t go because of work) I took the opportunity to do a cycle ride round the Upper Derwent reservoirs, mixing it with a bit of research for planning future Plan My Walk routes.

I wasn’t sure which of the many hikes and walks in the Peak District to do. In the end I started at one of the car parks on the road to Fairholmes, and headed up the western side along the road (which is closed at weekends). It’s an undulating road but nothing is too steep. After about 25 minutes I arrived at Kings Tree, where the road ends and I followed the track up to the bridge at Slippery Stones. After a quick detour on foot to reccy a potential wild camp spot, I then crossed the bridge and headed back on the other side of the reservoirs. It’s mostly a bumpy track until you get further south where it becomes fairly flat. Going back is always fun because it’s got more downhill!

 

I am now doing a blog about hikes and walks in the Peak District that I do with my dad. I am now doing a blog about walks I do with my dad , who does this website, my mum and brother. I LOVE  the walks we all go on that my dad plans

By the way my name is Emily and I will be writing this blog about walks me and my family go on.

Every time we do a walk I will write up how fun it is , if it is child friendly and if they have pubs , parks or anything fun at the end of them. I hope you enjoy reading this blog and I will keep you updated on any walks we do soon.

Bye Emily

P.S We are going to a youth hostel soon! I will blog about that soon!

Beautiful weather drew the crowds  but as ever if you’re prepared to head a bit further afield you can always find solitude. The hikes and walks in the Peak District can be incredibly varied and if you want us to help you plan routes to do just that, head to the Plan My Walk page and place an order!
