The Pennine Way National Trail follows 268 miles of trail chasing the Pennine Mountain tops along the rugged backbone of England. The trail passes through some of the most beautiful and remote countryside that northern England has to offer. It is, at times very challenging particularly if walked in one go and especially if the weather is bad! The route begins in Edale in Derbyshire and finishes in Kirk Yetholm in the Scottish Borders. You could walk the route in six days with an average of 14 miles a day. Of course you can organize shorter walks along a section of the route to enjoy the wonder of this lovely part of northern England without the sore legs!
