The Kinder Loop - Rushup Edge to Ladybower Reservoir bridleway

A beautiful horse-riding route through the heart of the Peak District.


The Kinder Loop, which has been developed by Peak Horsepower, encircles Kinder Scout and draws on existing bridleways, the Pennine Bridleway and the Trans-Pennine Trail to establish a 55 mile circular route through dramatic scenery. It is suitable for mountain bikes as well as horses.

This is a lovely ride on bridleways and a short section of road with great views of Kinder and surrounding countryside. It passes around the edge of Mam Tor, into the Edale valley and then over to the Ladybower reservoir. The going is very stony and steep in places.
