    Off to Hathersage at the beginning of October & need some routes. Thinking of a full day Cut Gate route & a couple of 3-4 hr loops(Mam Tor, Jacobs Ladder, etc). Counting on the oracles of the forum to guide me!!!! Also what is the best app to use for simple navigation!!!!

    Thanks for any help & happy trailsūü§ôūüŹĽ

    One of the first suggestions will be to buy this book so I’ll just get it in now…

    It’s actually not a bad idea. It’s full of maps and step by step directions for rides in that area. I used to just snap some photos of the ride I wanted on my phone and just follow that.

    Outdoor active app is good for following routes and navigation. You’ll probably find loads of free routes uploaded for the classics you want to do.

    I lived in Hathersage for nearly a decade so probably reasonably well placed to comment.

    There’s actually a bit of a ride from there to the best stuff if riding from the doorstep, but (in no particular order) the best trails are Offerton, Shatton Moor, Bradwell Edge, also up Stanage Long Causeway and down Plantation. Little bit further afield and can take in a (cheeky) ride down Burbage Edge. You could also hop on a train to Edale and then do a loop back via Jacobs Ladder, Rushup Edge, past Rowter Farm and down Cave Dale.

    Oh and if you want good food when there, the Indian restaurant, Maazi is fantastic. Heard good things about the Bank House too.

    Just put this loop together quickly as a suggestion.

    If you don’t fancy the cheeky up to Win Hill then can always do Hope Brink and then go through Aston and Thornhill and hop on the trail back up to Yorkshire Bridge.
