Activities

We have booked YHA Edale in the Dark Peaks for an autumn weekend of walking and cycling in the national park. Edale is at the start of the Pennine Way and is ideal for hikes direct from the hostel. On Saturday we plan a 10-12 mile walk including the unforgettable landscape of Kinder Scout. On Sunday we plan a shorter walk including a visit to English Heritage Peveril Castle (or other property) nearby or on route home. Organiser will be bringing 2 year old who will join us on the Sunday activity. There is also an option for cycling at Derwent (5 miles from hostel) with cycle hire at the centre. This super cycle route takes you around three beautiful reservoirs in the Derbyshire Peak District. Entire route is on car-free tracks with café at hire centre.

Refreshments

Hostel offers all meals and also has self-catering kitchen. Aim is to have dinner in YHA Edale on Saturday evening. Edale village has pubs. Packed lunch for Saturday walk.

Travel

By train to Edale station then walk or get lift to YHA Edale (call them; they may collect you given notice). Or by car: directions - head north on M1, exit J29, take A617 direct (north) to Hope, then right turn on Edale Road to village and hostel (well signed). Car sharing may be possible; no promises, but let organiser know in early October if you would like a lift with another attendee who has space in their car (state possible departure times / locations).
