Hope – Lose Hill – Back Tor – Hollins Cross – Castleton – Hope
Our route will see us initially ascend the lower slopes of Lose Hill where views of the surrounding valley will become increasingly spectacular.
The summit will be a well-deserved lunchtime picnic spot. We’ll then walk eastwards along the Great Ridge, dropping off Back Tor (vertigo sufferers should take caution here) and then at Hollins Cross we’ll begin our descent down in Castleton.
Subject to progress we’ll likely take the opportunity to enjoy a quick drink and toilet stop at one of the village pubs before the final 2.75km (45 mins) stretch back to Hope.
We’ll head to the excellent Old Hall Hotel for some pre-ordered pub food and well-deserved refreshments.Medium 11.5
