Walk No.14 Dark Peak Walks, Margery Hill to Back Tor, Peak District National Park

A sense of the wildness of the Dark Peak can be experienced on this walk, even though you are in sight of the Derwent Valley for practically the whole time. Some tough walking across open moorland is rewarded with spectacular views across the valleys of the Dark Peak.
