Walking Breaks in the Peak District
The Peak District provides excellent walking territory. With many hiking trails across the Pennines there are routes to suit all capabilities. Long distance trails and strenuous hill walking routes are readily available, as are shorter and easier routes. Many of the shorter routes use Bridleways whilst longer routes were formed when railways were taken up and removed in the 1960s. The Tissington Trail and the High Peak Trail are both longer routes that use former railway lines. Many of the trails that use former railway lines have disabled and wheelchair access built into them at certain points on the route.
Many walkers on a short break take the time to walk part of the infamous Pennine Way; often returning in future breaks to walk another section. For the walking enthusiast, the Peak District Walking and Outdoor Festival that takes place in April or early May each year is a great idea for a short break
