Name and Peak Horsepower on blue discKinder Loop

Derbyshire, S Yorkshire

84 km / 52 miles
The Kinder Loop encircles Kinder Scout and will provide an iconic new long-distance and challenging walking, cycling and riding route in the centre of the country. It draws on existing bridleways, the Pennine Bridleway and the Trans-Pennine Trail to establish a 52 mile circular route through dramatic scenery.

Starting from the head of the Ladybower reservoir, the route goes north alongside the Derwent and Howden reservoirs before crossing the moors to Langsett. Here it picks up the Trans-Pennine Trail to travel west to Glossop and the Pennine Bridleway. [Until the Pennine Bridleway is finished around Glossop, there is a 1/2mile section on an A road and 3 miles on a country road]. The Kinder Loop then goes south along the Pennine Bridleway to Rushup Edge. Here it leaves the Pennine Bridleway and travels east via Mam Tor to Edale and back to the Ladybower and Derwent reservoirs.
