Download GPS FileRed Tarn & Birkhouse Moor from Glenridding
Visiting one of the major summits of the Lake District is often the objective of a walk. However lower-level walks can often offer equally scenic walking as in the case of this route to Red tarn below Helvellyn. The walk offers some views of the high peaks, excellent walking and immersion in beautiful Lakeland scenery all typical of many Lake District walks.
