There just isn’t a bad time to walk in the Peak District, each season offers something new. The twenty circular walks in this book vary in length from 2 to 8 miles and are enjoyable all year round. The author has divided the routes into seasons to show each at its very best. In spring, the fields around Monyash are golden with cowslips and the woods near Hayfield are a sea of bluebells. On a fine day in summer there are wonderful views over the hilltops and the moorland around Edale is purple with heather. Autumn brings colour to the Tissington Trail and the reservoirs near Holme are a splendid place to see migrant birds. To appreciate the special atmosphere of the Derwent Valley you should visit in winter.
