As parents ourselves we know it can be tricky sometimes to come up with ideas of what to do with the little ones during the holidays. So, as a way to help you out we have come up with Mini Mountaineers, walks designed to be adventurous and ideal for children aged 5 and upwards. All children must be accompanied by an adult but can attend the walk for free (adults are charged at £5 each because we also know that entertaining children isn't always cheap). Walks are led by a qualified Mountain Leader, First Aider and Mountain Rescue Team member who also holds a current DBS certificate. Due to our location all the walks are around the western and northern sides of the Peak District, East Manchester and Saddleworth.

Mini Mountaineers - Bleaklow
Looking for something to do with the kids this half term? Why not take them up a mountain? This is a child friendly (5 years and older) walk of around 5 miles. Starting at the top of the Snake Pass where there is ample parking, we will follow the Pennine Way and take in some of the sights that makes Bleaklow so special including the remains of the United States airforce bomber "Over Exposed" which crashed near the top in 1946. Prices for parents is £5 and the kids come free (must be accompanied).
The walk is led by a qualified Mountain Leader who also has a current DBS and first aid certificate and is a member of Glossop Mountain Rescue so you're in safe hands. Of course, the weather may be less than tropical so decent footwear and waterproofs are essential as is a packed lunch or snacks and drinks.
