The Pennine Way National Trail is a long distance footpath along the spine of England from the Peak District National Park to the Scottish Borders. When it opened in 1965 the Pennine Way was England's first National Trail and it remains the most iconic. It starts in the pretty village of Edale at the foot of Kinder Scout and Edale Moor and passes north through the Peak District, Yorkshire Dales and the North Pennines before crossing Hadrian's Wall and the wild Northumberland Cheviot Hills beyond, ending in the Scottish village of Kirk Yetholm. Completing the trail is a fantastic achievement and you will be rewarded with some of the finest upland walking that England has to offer.
