Waterpoof jackets on list for Bleaklow hike
Bookmark and Share
Waterproof jackets and walking boots are among the items those taking part in a guided walk on the second highest hill in the Peak District have been told to bring.

The national park authority is staging a hike on the north side of Bleaklow on October 3rd, starting from the car park by Torside Reservior in Longendale at 10:30 BST.

It has been described as involving a lot of rambling across high moorland with "some steep climbs" as it takes in the high places on Bleaklow, which has a large cairn on its 2,077 ft high top.

The other summit above 2,000 ft on the moor is Higher Shelf Stones at 2,021 ft.

Ordnance Survey Maps users may note the Pennine Way climbs from Longendale up to Bleaklow and this continues northwards to the Snake Path and on towards the highest point in the national park, Kinder Scout at 2,088 ft.

As well as the Longedale route, those climbing Bleaklow can do so without steep ascents via the Pennine Way from the car park on the Snake Pass, or take on a more challenging route from Glossop via the Doctor's Gate path.
