Hare we go in the Peak District
Bookmark and Share
One great reason to go walking in winter is the chance to see landscapes with their winter coats on.

Just as spring and summer can bring lush and vedant shades and autumn offers red, gold and brown tones, so winter can offer a pristine white landscape of snow and frost.

Nor is it just the plants or the weather that can be different, with mountain hares moulting in autumn as their brown coats are replaced with white camouflage.

The Peak District National Park authority is conducting a ranger-guided walk on Derwent Edge on January 20th in search of this seasonal treat.

Seeting off from the Fairholmes Visitor Centre at 10:00 GMT and lasting until 16:00 GMT, this could be a very good occasion to take winter clothing, thermals and even crampons if there is lots of snow about.

On the same day, rangers also offer a gentler six-mile walk with fewer ascents, between Ashford and Great Longstone via Monsal Head and Little Longstone.ADNFCR-2803-ID-801521188-ADNFCR
