I found this a very pleasant, low-level walk, one which can easily be combined with a visit to one or more of the caves around Castleton. It is well-signposted and is a mix of tracks and pastures with good views of the surrounding hills. Many of the stiles have been replaced by gates, which makes things less of an obstacle course.

Lovely little walk on a sunny lunchtime. We bought two glorious vegan sandwiches from Plant & Planet and had a little picnic in one of the sheep fields on the walk. Perfect!

Having read the comments on the busy road, we adjusted our route between WM1 and 2 to avoid it. Cross the road from the Visitor Centre and take the lane that heads towards Peak Cavern. Before you get there follow a finger post on the right to follow a path passing round the back of Goosehill Hall and joining the Wynatts Pass Road just short of Speedwell Cavern. Take the path opposite to arrive on minor road close to WM2.

A very nice short walk 'out of town' and back as the sun was out.

Fine apart from the stretches of road at the start and finish of the walk.

One of our first walks from Walkingworld and we found the directions excellent. The road wasn't very busy and the views alongside were amazing.
