This walk makes a circuit around the lower section of Dovedale, taking in all its most famous features. The description starts from Alstonefield, but the walk could equally well be done from Ilam.
The lower Manifold valley one of the most beautiful parts of the Peak District and is an excellent area for walking. This circuit from Wetton takes in Thor's Cave and continues down to Ilam, returning along the opposite side of the river.
This describes two possible circuits along the River Dove from Hartington - one relatively long and the other much shorter.
The River Hamps valley and the low hills surrounding it offer good walking in pleasant scenery. The route described here explores the valley, making the outward trip along one side of the Hamps and returning along the other.
This walk goes from limestone dales at the bottom of the valley to gritstone moor above. There are several interesting features along the way - Robin Hood's Stride, Cratcliff Tor and the Bronze and Iron Age remains on Harthill Moor.
Lathkill Dale is one of the finest limestone dales and this circuit takes in that and the more discreet charms of Bradford Dale too. Longer than most of the other limestone area walks but with fine scenery.
This starts from the bank of the River Wye at the bottom end of Monsal Dale and climbs steeply up to Sheldon, before returning to the valley. Some good views and industrial archaeology in the form of disused lead mines.
This starts and ends at Monsal Head, a famous Peak District beauty spot. The route goes along Monsal Dale, over the limestone ridge through which the River Wye carves out its valley near Fin Cop, and then descends back into the valley to return to Monsal Head.
This walk starts at Cressbrook Mill and loops around through the Ravensdale valley, Tansley Dale, Litton Village, Tideswell Dale and then returns to Cressbrook via the spectacular Wye valley of Water-cum-Jolly.
This spectacular walk follows the course of the River Wye through the gorges of Cheedale and then returns by another route. This is not a walk for anyone who is not fairly nimble - the route is often rocky and slippery, with the possibility of getting your feet wet!
