Mam tor is just a short walk out of Castleton or if you're early you can get a space at the local car park. The sunrises up there are amazing.

Usual tourist honeypot, can be crowded. Not really worth visiting. The views are just ok, nothing special just some fields. It's not particularly high either.

We were lucky to have a sunny day in October with no wind. We started and ended our walk from Castleton. Walking firstly through fields and then up via the old collapsed road.
The first climb up Mam Tor isn't difficult. There's a great view of the winding road if you walk over to the left hand side as you walk up. At the top there's a marker and views in all directions. Stunning colours of the green fields, especially against the blue skies.
As you carry on following the Ridge you come to Back Tor. A little bit of a steeper climb on rocky path. At the top the views continue.
Keep going and you'll reach lose hill. You'll walk down this and find grazing sheep. The walk continues downwards through a tree lined path which takes your to Hope village where we couldn't help but have a pint in the Old Cheshire Cheese pub. Also a welcome toilet break as there are none on the walk.
Carry on up the road and just opposite Spar take the road by the church and then on your right there's a footpath that runs along the river for a small part and then into fields. The sun was coming down over the fields at this point. The path then appears and leads you back into Castleton.
Loved this walk. You can take it at a steady pace and the scenery is varied and gorgeous the whole way round.
Good shoes are needed if doing the full walk as there are some rocky/muddy steps in parts which were a bit slippery.

Lovely walk with gorgeous views all around, very picturesque. Free parking along road sides if you can find a space. Easy to follow route.

This is a great walk with excellent views all along the ridge. The climb to Mam Tor is quite steep but it is well made with steps in places. The whole route is well defined so no need to worry about getting lost!

A route that all the family can do. The path is very clear and safe, and the views are superb. Would recommend leaving a couple of hours to do the round trip.

We parked at Mam Nick National Trust car park and walked up to Mam Tor from there (cashless payment via website or app).
The pathway was easier underfoot than I expected with large flattish slab and steps in places. We all wore trainers which was sufficient as the ground and grass was very dry, probably a totally different walk if it had rained!
With 2 children we only managed part the way along the ridge and then back to Mam Tor but we could still take in the stunning scenery from the top on a clear day. Had a lovely pub lunch at the George in Castleton afterwards.

The entire distance needs to be covered to count as a proper walk ! Did ½ of it (Mam Tor to Back Tor) on day 1, then all of it (Losehill back to Mam Tor) on day 2.

We started in Castleton and completed a 6.5 mile circular walk incorporating Mam Tor and walked along the ridge to Losehill Pike and finished with a lovely cream tea in Castleton. The views at the top are definitely worth the effort. Be aware when you get up Mam Tor this isn’t the end of the uphill walking if you walk to Losehill. Take it slowly and you will make it and be glad you did! After that it’s downhill all the way. It’s mostly a reasonable path but walking boots are a must. Take a picnic and enjoy the views at the top.
