The Peak District is one of our favourite places to visit for a hike and it seems we aren’t the only ones as the national park has been named as one of the best spots in the UK for a winter hike.
The national park located a stone’s throw from Sheffield has a range of fantastic and varied walks with stunning views, hard claims and historic places to see.
If you’re looking to get back to nature we’d recommend one of the Peak Districts’ best views and trails following trails as they wind their way through the park.
One trail that has been included in a list of six spectacular hikes was The Trinnacle Trail in the northern part of the Peak District. The beautiful route was chosen by outdoor goods retailer Blacks.
Highlights of the route include the isolated three-pronged rock formation, the Trinnacle, which sits above the Greenfield Valley, Dovestone and Yeoman Hey reservoirs.
Joe Dambra, a landscape photographer, told Blacks his favourite way to visit the iconic Peak District landmark saying: “I like to start the hike from the Binn Green car park. From there you go clockwise, past Greenfield Reservoir, then climb the brook up onto the moors.
“Follow the moors for around 20 minutes and you will have arrived at the Trinnacle.
It has stunning views over the reservoirs below and is a nice easy walk perfect for the last bit of winter. Best of all there are cosy villages nearby where you can get some comfort food and a bevvie.
