Walk to the Cascade Dam

We have many great memories of exploring Cascade Dam, long before Derby was on the map of holiday destinations. We used to take our bikes and kayaks and go exploring around the dam, and camp in a little flat spot near the lake. The tree marking each summer when we came for our holidays is still there. Coming from the Dales, turn right at the Derby Town Hall and then on to Cascade Dam Road. It’s a decent 2-hour walk up the Cascade Dam Road through to the Cascade Dam. Otherwise, drive up the road, park at the dam, and explore from there. Tell us what you find – and look for that tree!
