Great views and well worth the hike. However, I don't recommend coming down the "off piste" shorter route down the side of the hillside as it was very steep with lots of streams to cross and rocks to scramble over.

Early part of the Pennine Way leading you to Kinder Scout. Yes it's challenging but this first part of the Pennine Way packs a punch!! Take your time and enjoy the right to roam.

Its well worth climbing these steps. At the top you get an excellent view of peak district and surrounding areas on a clear day. A fantastic place in the heart of peak district.

It is a great ascent and provides a great view but it is one of the most tiring areas to walk in the Peak District. This can be don't in stages but it is not the easiest to assent better to decent :)

We parked at Upper Booth (no facilities) and took the Pennine Way to Jacob's Ladder. Easy to follow, some challenging climbing on the Ladder, well worth the views up to Kinder Scout. Great route.

It takes a bit of effort to walk all the stairs (or the alternative grindle path) to the top of Jacobs Ladder, but it's one of the nicest pathways I've done in Peak District ND. Continue to Kinder Scout from there - really great views!
