Curbar Edge – an easy walk under the fog in the Peak District

Hi there! So of course the landscapes in England are very different from the winter to the summer as you can imagine. However, I swear to you that they are just as beautiful. Indeed, Stanage Edge‘s cliffs blew my mind last August, and this winter, a hike to Curbar Edge took my breath away for several reasons.

Curbar Edge, a simple walk with stunning views

Cliffs and beautiful views go hand in hand and even though it was foggy the day I walked at Curbar Edge it didn’t stop me from enjoying the stunning panorama over the village of Curbar and its surroundings. The fog brought a touch of mystery to the scenery, which made it even more enjoyable.
There are two options for this hike! The first is to follow the main path with spectacular views over the Peak District (that’s what I did). The second option is to walk through grassland to the east of the Edge. Open your eyes if you choose this option because apparently deer are never far away! Just a little extra to make the walk even better!
The hike is even easier if you park at the Curbar Bar car park because it’s almost flat from there. It’s quite a popular walk because, even if there are puddles and rocky ground, the main path is easily walkable for every member of the family. So be careful for those of you who are allergic to tourists! After this hike I recommend a gourmet break in Bakewell which is only a few miles away. Just to regain strength with one of their famous Bakewell tart!

So are you tempted by Curbar Edge walk? Do you have a memory of a hike under the fog  that you’d like to share? Thanks for leaving a comment or any questions.
