We stopped in Edale and started walking along the Penine Way. We didn’t have a map and decided to explore independently. We didn’t know what to expect and the poor signage didn’t help. We ended up walking to Jacobs Ladder, along the fringes of Kinder...More
Edale is a special place where you can park up for a week and experience different walks everyday. Jacob’s ladder is a great way to get onto Kinder Scout Moor. The bridge and watercourse at the bottom of Jacob’s is an idyllic spot to stop...More
Pretty much as other people have described, the ascent is a bit of a slog on a hot day although the path is generally good quality and clear all the way. The view from the top is definitely worth it, a good place to linger...More

One must never be complacent in The Peak! Never take any road as safe but assess the walk first. I walk every week but never solo. Research is done before the walk! This area is remote so get a taxi as far as possible is my advice. Local knowledge is best taken from local people. Take care.

Clear path to the ladder and always plenty of other walkers about. I wouldn't recommend this walk in poor weather-the moor is featureless in the mist and easy to lose the path-on a clear day it's wonderful and totally safe
