Description: The gritstone edges of the Peak District are famous for rock climbing but their elevation and fantastic views also make for excellent trail running. Although challenging, this route spreads the climbs out when done anticlockwise. It starts with a gentle stretch along the river Derwent, before a steep climb onto Froggatt Edge - take in the beauty of this ancient woodland by walking some sections. The majority of the route is on wide, rocky paths with some narrower parts through the woods. When passing Birchen Edge, look out for rock climbers and scramble to the top to check out Nelson's Monument. Pause to take in the view at White Edge trig point and look out for deer on Big Moor. If you're feeling weary, there are easy escape routes back to Hathersage. For the full value though, continue north through the Burbage Valley, below the Iron Age hill fort of Carl Wark and then on to Stanage Edge, before a long descent back to Hathersage.
