Walk Description:

A lovely but strenuous walk up to the trig point on Lantern Pike and then onto the lower hills of Kinder Scout. The walk starts from Hayfield on the flat along the Sett Valley Trail then turns sharply uphill on a long climb to the Trig Point on Lantern Pike. We then descend the far side and then back towards Hayfield, then climb again towards a shooting lodge on the lower hills of Kinder Scout then back down to Hayfield.

This is a challenging 7.5 mile walk but with great views to reward you when you reach the trig point. The walk is all on footpaths with a small amount of road. There are a couple of stiles.

Anyone who wants to, can stay for a pub lunch in the Rambler's Bar at the Royal Hotel - good beer and food. Let Jane know by Wednesday so we can book a table

We will meet at 9.20 at the Sett Valley Trail car park which is clearly signposted on A624 as you approach Hayfield. Turn right off the A624 and immediately right then first left into the car park. It's pay and display so allow at least 3.5 hours, longer if you want a pub lunch.
