An evening walk up Mill Hill via Harry Hut trigpoint, returning by way of William Clough
Distance: 10km; Ascent: 370m; Dry and overcast with little wind; Solo
It had been some years since I had last climbed Mill Hill to the north-west of Kinder Scout and I'd only ever climbed it by way of the Pennine Way. Therefore I decided to head up Mill Hill for my evening walk today and I planned a circular route from near the Grouse Inn at the summit of the A624 Glossop to Hayfield road. I set off walking at around 7:15pm from the large layby a few hundred metres north of the pub, crossed a stile onto access land and followed a path eastwards across Chunal Moor to reach the trigpoint on Harry Hut.
