Introduction to Walk 3388

Photo from the walk - Around Hayeswater and Angle Tarn From Hartsop

Nat Park - Lake District

County/Area - Cumbria

Author - Stephen Starkey

Length - 11.5 miles / 18.7 km

Ascent - 3260 feet / 988 metres

Grade - mod/hard

This Lake District circuit is a challenging route and includes some fine walking, some tarns, plus a summit or two! The weather on this occasion was poor hence the lack of photos and I only met 4 people and a dog. In fine weather this is some of finest country in the far eastern lakeland fells. The views west are superb with Helvellyn and many other peaks filling the horizon. A GPX File is available for download (see walk description).
