Hare we go for December Peak District walk
Bookmark and Share
A guided walk in the Peak District next month will involve trying to spot the mountain hare, which will by then be sporting its seasonal white coat.

Run by the national park authority, it begins at the Clarence Hotel in Greenfield at 10:30 GMT on December 19th, lasting until after sunset at 16:00 as those putting on their own winter jackets and walking boots try to spot the animal on the moors above Oldham.

Those taking part will be covering ten miles of often rough moorland, so as well as good hiking boots, waterproofs, food and drink will be required, while binoculars are advised.

Walkers on the trip will be exploring the highest land in Greater Manchester and this is not the only county whose loftiest point is covered by the Peak District.

Cheshire's county top of Shining Tor is in the national park, marking the boundary with Derbyshire, while the latter county rises to the 2,088 ft summit of Kinder Scout.
