Our Hayfield Skyline walk is one of the Peak District’s hidden gems. A cracker of a route, including the much-loved western edge of the Kinder plateau. Also, we enjoy some of the lesser trod paths where the views are equally spectacular, but will have the trail very much to ourselves.

We meet in Hayfield, our home base and a superb place to begin our walk. The village is very well served with excellent facilities. We always finish our day’s either at one of the cafes or pubs, helping to support other businesses in our community. If you have a couple of days, there are a number of B&Bs and self-catering options to choose from. There is also a post office, grocers, paper shop, pharmacist, chip shop and Italian restaurant.

SAFETY & OTHER MATTERS

Ranger Expeditions’ Hayfield Skyline is a guided walk and larger groups will have several guides to look after you on the trail. If at any time you feel unwell during the trek, please let us know. Do graze on snacks and keep hydrated during the walk, a little fatigue is often resolved by taking on something to eat and drink.

Unsurprisingly, there are no toilets on the hills, but there are plenty of discrete places for a call of nature. Do let one of our guides know if you move away from the trail for any reason. We encourage folks to mingle and enjoy their day, but please do not move ahead or out of sight of your guide. If you do find yourself separated, remain where you are and call the duty number given out on the morning of the walk.

Photography: We often have a photographer on our events. Complimentary photos of your day with us are made available to download via our social media platform. If you do not want your photograph to be taken please let us know on the day so we can respect your wishes.

GDPR: As part of our duty of care to you, we need to hold your contact details and any medical declarations (in-confidence) for the build-up and duration of the walk. These will not be passed on to any third parties and will be carefully disposed of afterwards.

Dogs: We love our four-legged friends. But for practical reasons, we’re sorry dogs are not permitted on this challenge.

Covid-19: For the safety and welfare of all participants and guides, we shall be complying with ongoing Covid-19 Government regulations and best practice. This walk is fully compatible with an enjoyable guided experience and social distancing.
