    In the Dark Peak:

    * Circuit of Kinder Edges (about 16 miles if you stick strictly to the edge)

    * Eastern Edges. Start at Langsett and just keep going. If you want a really challenging walk go all the way to Matlock. However, much shorter routes are possible.

    Forgot to say circular routes would be nice, we are staying down in the south of the peak but have a car, so I guess somewhere to park is also a consideration.

    Another good 'un

    Last weekend I was introduced to The Roaches ridge, Hen Cloud and Ramshaw Rocks. It was my first visit and a group of us had a splendid 13-mile walk there. See http://www.outdoorsmagic.com/forum/m...3/58399-5.html for the route and some photos.

    Baslow, Curbar, Frogatt and White Edges make a nice circular walk about 8 miles. Park in Baslow for free on street if you get there early enough.

    You could also park the car at Grindleford station, take the train to Edale or Hope and walk back by various routes.

    Robin Hood's Stride, Nine Stones Close, Haddon Hall and the Nine Ladies Stone Circle if you're interested in antiquities - something like this http://www.britishwalks.org/walks/2003/576.php

    Lathkill Dale and the surrounds, if you're there on a quiet, preferably wet, day

    I've walked John Merrill's ""Peak District: High Level Route" both ways over the years. It is an interesting trip and makes a good week in the Peak District if you are prepared to keep moving each day.

    It's 5/6 days backpacking and as the book is quite old it makes route finding a bit more interesting!

    The book is available through Walk and Write Ltd tel: 01629 540991

    It can be done in stages and will get you away from some of the more obvious places.

    But, from the looks of previous comments there is plenty of choice.
