This walk is mostly easy, though some paths are on the rocky side; the area is well-walked and climbed (on Froggatt Edge). The only area that can be tricky to find is the start of the descent from Froggatt Edge to the pub in the middle of this walk.

The popularity of this area seems to show how difficult the path is. Froggatt Edge is about as quiet as walking down the High Street of your local town over the weekend, even with families with pushchairs! (struggling). All of the tricky walking areas are on the outward route; the return is much easier, but in places a quick check of the map may be necessary.
The paths on the last section are not shown on Ordnance Survey maps, being concessionary paths within the Chatsworth House Estate, (usually free access but at times, during special events, access may be restricted or a small charge levied). They are however, waymarked and well-maintained, with some parts open to creative interpretation. Some worn tracks can be nothing more than sheep trails.

The pub in the middle of this walk,'The Chequers', only tolerates walkers, which is surprising considering how many people walk this area. There is a sign requesting removal of boots and they do not allow dogs. The menu is good if pricey and they offer a good choice of beers. There is a beer-garden accessible through the pub (again 'No Dogs'), otherwise there is little allowance for eating your own food, other than the roadside walls to the front of the pub.

Good walk. Chequers seemed very welcoming. We did have to remove our boots but only after asking the question of the helpful staff.
