Edale Hayfield Loop

16 miles

A classic Peak District mountain bike route that takes in Jacob's Ladder, Roych Clough and Rushup Edge and skirting Mount Famine and Mam Tor. It involves a lot of climbing, and will test your mountain biking skills. The route is good in both directions. For adrenaline junkies then taking on the route clockwise - to go down Jacobs Ladder and also down the rock steps of Rushup Edge should be considered. For most others there's enough buzz anti-clockwise.

Edale Hayfield Loop with extension around Castleton

21.5 miles (Loop plus extension)

This mountain bike route extension adds about a 5 mile loop from Mam Nick to Hollins Cross and down a breathtaking descent to Castleton. The reward(!) for this is a 900 feet climb back up to Mam Nick via the byway near Blue John Mine. The byway was actually the former road until is subsided in the late 1970's. Where the road has collapsed provides a good excuse for a photo and time to catch your breath.
