1SK2347581233 Park where you can in Hathersage, or park on the road by waypoint 3 and miss this first section. A path leads off the main road just below a bus stop on the A6187. This rises steeply through the woods.
2SK2392181146 After a gate, take the middle branch through the trees up a short ridge and follow the path around to the right. Eventually you come to a gate. The path splits just after this so turn right and head across towards Over Owler Tor and Millstone.
3SK2440980837 After the electric gate cross the road. There is room here for cars on the verge if you want to start the walk from this point and miss the section from Hathersage. Take the path on the edge of the woods. There is also a parallel path on the moors to the left of the woods if you want to keep in the sun.
4SK2499680640 On leaving the woods, turn left and follow a path around under a ruin. Follow the path steeply up and across to Over Owler Tor. If it is windy and you want to take a short cut, you can go diagonally across the moor from this point to join the path from Over Owler Tor.
5SK2523181564 At a junction by a wall, turn left and drop down very steeply to the road. Cross this and a stile and then descend more gently to Mitchell Field Farm.
6SK2483881696 At the farm follow the drive but turn almost immediately right on a small path through the woods. Cross a stile into a wide field and head across to another wall with a step stile.
7SK2434081315 The wide moor leads pleasantly back via the development at Scraperlow with its electric gates. Continue direct along the approach drive and path to rejoin your approach at the stile and drop back down to the start.
