Continue along the High Peak Trail until you reach the deserted Longcliffe Station with its picnic tables. Just past the station and before you reach the house (on the left) take the track on the right to reach the road via a squeeze stile. Turn left to follow the road under the High Peak Trail.
Continue along the road, round two bends, to reach a public bridleway sign and stile on the left. Cross the stile and follow the clear track, with the wall on your left, to reach a gate and sheep pens.
Take the field to the right of the sheep-pens. Continue straight ahead, in the direction of Rainster Rocks, with the wall to your left, to a tree at the corner of the field. Continue straight ahead across the second field to cross a broken wall into a third field. Ignore any footpath signs on your left to follow the path below Rainster Rocks.
To visit Rainster Rocks, at a stake, which marks an obvious crossroad, turn right uphill. The faint path will eventually swing right, through the trees to reach the foot of the rocks. Be aware that Rainster Rocks are exposed and very narrow at the summit. They can be explored with care but children should be closely supervised at all times. Return to the footpath the same way you approached the rocks.
Follow the clear track, which is staked, across the field heading towards the barn and not the left-hand corner of the field. Turn left to walk along the road for less than 100 yards. Where the road turns sharply right continue straight ahead, along the walled track.
At the end of the track turn right through a squeeze stile by a gate and follow the clear path across the field for magnificent views of Carsington Water. As the path heads downhill it reaches another squeeze stile and then splits. Take the left-hand and higher fork in the track to initially continue along the hillside before dropping to the corner of the field behind Chapel House.
Exit the field and turn left along the lane. When another lane comes in from below continue straight ahead, uphill, to a road junction. Turn right, downhill, to the entrance to the car park.
