This walk is a great walk for the campers out there. The walk should take around 5 hours and you get some great views from Kinder. If you are a geocahcer there are some cache to find as well. End the trip with a pint at Edale. To reach the Grouse Inn (www.grouseinnglossop.co.uk), take any busy running between Glossop and New Mills or Buxton. Trains back from Edale, as well as buses.
