The walk begins with a lengthy stretch alongside the reservoirs of the Derwent Valley, followed by a climb to Margery Hill, steep in only a few places. There is then a long walk along Howden Edge and a fairly gentle descent. Most of the ground is firm, with tracks or paved sections.

A fabulous hike I have done a number of times and never had an issue with cyclists apart from next to the reservoir occasionally. Fit dogs will enjoy this too, but if they are like mine and have an eye for sheep, don't be tempted to let them off lead!! The path on Howden Edge was incredibly dry last time I walked it, usually its very boggy. Wonderful views

We did this walk on 19th November, 2011, my two teenage sons, myself and our westie dog. It was a good dry day and the views were very good. We decided to do the hill part the other way around and went up at point 15. Our westie enjoyed the walk, in particular the section from points 15 to 7 as we only saw five people on that part. The other parts of the walk were good but we had to constantly be aware of cyclists going too fast down the hills.

We did this walk on 13th Feb 08. Cold & windy but the sun was shining, soon warmed up on the climb up Cranberry Clough to Cut Gate End. Fantastic views and superb moorland. We were even lucky enough to see a LANCASTER taking a flight over the valley!! Just wish we could have been closer to the valley!! Highly recommended!!
