Walking and hiking in the Eden Valley.
Of all the many wonderful things to do in the Eden Valley, this is one of the most popular of all.
Dufton Pike is situated in The North Pennines, one of England’s most stunning landscapes.
You will find open heather moors and peatlands, attractive dales and hay meadows.
In addition, there are tumbling upland rivers, wonderful woods, welcoming communities, intriguing imprints of a mining and industrial past, distinctive birds, animals and plants and much, much more.
As a consequence and in recognition of its special qualities the area has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).
The North Pennines is also a UNESCO European and Global Geopark – highlighting its globally important Earth heritage.
Cumbria County Council have produced a very helpful guide to Dufton Pike, which can be downloaded from here
