Peak District Boundary Walk
To celebrate our beautiful national park, we’ve devised a 200-mile walking route around its entire boundary.
- Stretching from the moorland tops of the South Pennines to the gentle limestone scenery of the Derbyshire Dales, the route embraces the urban edges of Sheffield and Oldham, as well as Staffordshire’s rugged moorland and the undulating slopes of Cheshire.
- Follow the route along existing footpaths, tracks, quiet lanes, former railway lines and a canal towpath
- Enjoy some quiet and little known corners of the national park
- Walk it in day stages or tackle it all in one go
An updated version of the book is currently being written and will be released soon. In the meantime please refer to the ‘Before You Walk’ section further down this page for the latest updates to the route.
