Thoughts on short Peak District hike?

Jump to last reply

Hi, we are a family of four heading to Europe later this spring. We have one open day in Manchester, and I was hoping we might explore the Peak District since it's so close.

Background -- I'm reasonably fit and getting better :-), our two teens are ridiculously fit and husband is reasonably fit but recovering from knee surgery (not a replacement) last year. He's almost 100% and loves to walk/hike/photograph but is a little concerned about overdoing it early in our trip. However, he doesn't want to miss out on a trip to the Peak District, because the images we've seen so far are amazing.

I found this hike online which is only 5.5 miles and looks like it might work for us. Any thoughts?

We'll have the whole day so I figure we can take our time. Worst case scenario, if we get to Edale and husband decides against going, he can relax in the pub or stroll through the town with camera in hand while the teens and I hike, and then we can meet up afterward. From what I've seen, Edale is a small village ... any local favorites? I've only seen references to the train station and the Old Nag's Head.

Thanks for your feedback -- much appreciated!
