Hiking Around

Leave only footprints, take only pictures and memories!

List of walks around the Peak District and Derbyshire

The times are not reflective of the difficulty of the walk as they include stops for coffee, lunch and taking in the views. My fitness level is probably at the lower end of average, I am generally a leisurely walker, though my pace can vary depending on who I am with. My own average pace is about 3-4 miles per hour on easy terrain, or 1-2 minutes per 10 metre map contour and 1-2.5 miles per hour on difficult/strenuous terrain, or 3-4 minutes per 10 metre map contour.
