About

Walk In Derbyshire is a free resource of hiking routes and organised group walks around Derbyshire and the surrounding Peak District National Park.

The site emerged from the creators (Leigh Walker) passion for the great outdoors and especially that of the Peak District National Park.

Hiking Routes

Walk In Derbyshire showcases several hiking routes. Each route contains essential information, online maps, a GPX file, a gallery, and brief guidance on how to carry out the walk. New routes are added to the site regularly.

Although the guidance is there to give a good overview of the walk, please do not rely on it to navigate entirely. It is highly recommended that you download the GPX file and add it into an outdoor GPS device or app on a mobile phone. And always take a physical map of the area and compass with you!

You are responsible for your own safety, so prepare and take care out there.

Group Walks

Throughout the year we host free, organised group walks open for all to join, lead by Leigh Walker.

The walks have a relaxed, easy-going atmosphere and tend to attract people with a similar vibe. We are not strict on routine, although do try and keep people safe at all times. We’ve never had a bad group yet!

Note that although we try our best, we are not responsible for your own safety. If you don’t feel fit enough or think you may struggle for any other reason, then we recommend you do not attend.
