It was another wonderful day for my final walk of the holiday with clear blue sky and less windy & warmer than yesterday. The 7 mile route with 1450ft of ascent started from Hayfield and followed the banks of the River Kinder to the Kinder Reservoir. From here there was a short climb onto Middle Moor before dropping down to Little Hayfield. The main climb of the day (500ft) then followed up the side of Lantern Pike. This saw me stripping off, again, to shirt & pullover. With the climbing behind me it was all downhill back to Hayfield.
I’ve been incredibly lucky with the weather and have managed a total of 50 miles and just over 10,000ft of ascent on 6 walks. Not bad for late Feb/early Mar.
