Dam Long Walk


64 km / 40 miles
A tough circular walk around 32 dams and reservoirs surrounding Black Hill in the North Western section of the Dark Peak. This demanding circuit cunningly links together a vast collection of reservoirs by combining short sections of the Pennine Way with lesser-known tracks. A varied route which constantly reveals picturesque and delightful scenery. Shorter variations of 30 miles are possible by using sections of road.
