Chrome Hill is a highly distinctive hill that is actually a Limestone Reef Knoll. The above picture of the hill is taken from the summit of the hill's equally distinctive neighbouring hill - Parkhouse Hill. I would describe these set of hills as not only one of the finest walks in the Peak District, but also one of the only ridge walks you can do in the national park, just a stunning place to visit. The view from the summit of Chrome Hill certainly does not disappoint either, to the north the view looks towards Hob Tor and on towards Kinder Scout, to the north east the view looks towards Eldon Hill and Mam Tor, east looks towards High Low and Bole Hill, south east looks towards Parkhouse Hill, Hitter Hill and High Wheeldon. South looks across the River Dove and on towards the north Staffordshire Moors. south west looks towards Hollinsclough Moor, west looks towards Hollins Hill, and north west looks towards Tor Rock and on towards Axe Edge Moor.
