Eccles Pike is an isolated hill three miles to the west of Chapel en le Frith in the Derbyshire Peak District. It consists of gritstone, pink in colour at the summit. While not as prominent as the surrounding hills of Cracken Edge and Combs Moss, it is popular with walkers. At 370 metres (1,210 ft) above sea level, it offers good views of Manchester to the west and the Kinder Scout plateau to the east. Combs reservoir lies just to the south of the hill.
Eccles Pike Fell Race
The Eccles Pike Fell Race is reputedly one of the oldest fell races in the country, dating back to the beginning of the century. It is renowned for being short, tough and demanding.
