Hen Cloud is located in the Peak District of Derbyshire, England. Along with The Roaches and Ramshaw Rocks, it forms a gritstone escarpment, popular with hikers, rock climbers and freerunners. It is very busy particularly at weekends. The peak offers a large open view all the way and many interesting weathered gritstone boulders, with a great easy to moderate walk. The sandstone beds of both Hen Cloud and the Roaches plunge steeply to the northwest into the syncline.
