Snake Pass

Snake Pass

The Snake Pass is probably most frequently heard of on weather and traffic reports as it is usually one of the first trans-Pennine routes to be blocked by snow and ice. However there is more to this picturesque valley than meets the eye.

The road from Glossop to the Ladybower Reservoir was built in 1820 by Telford. There is a steep drop beside the road, railed off for long stretches by crash barriers. In summer it is a pleasant moorland drive but in winter it may quickly be blocked by snow.

Excellent walking with spectacular and remote landscape. Some good mountain biking routes on bridleways.

Follow A57 through the valley in the Derbyshire Peak District.
