Get prepared for another active day – today, you’re hiking in the peaks. Hike the Stanage Edge route, a challenging 4-hour walk starting in Hathersage and consisting of climbs. Your last day in the Peak District is about pushing yourself, admiring the scenery and helping each other complete the route.
