Hen Cloud and the Roaches are two beautiful areas of the Peak District. This trail does contain some road sections, and I recommend parking at the Ye Olde Rock Inn, and completing the route backwards. This way you summit Hen Cloud first - and get to enjoy a quality beer afterwards. All in, my trail was 22.75km and took 5hrs (excluding lunch break).
