Started at NT car park walked to Mam Tor summit from there along path to Barker bank onto Lose hill. We then walked down into Hope picked up the path for Win hill up to the summit. We decided to do the steep path which wasn't as bad as it looks! Rewarded with the view over LadyBower reservoir. From there we walked back into Hope to Castleton up through Winnats pass to the NT car park to finish. Total 14miles.Louiejay09/06/2019

4 out of 5 this day, perfectly pleasant bump along the main path. Back Tor, a rocky crag yonder from Barker Bank is actually more impressive and a great place for a bite to eat if it's not too windyAltheus15/08/2018
