Walk with family and friends in memory of Adam Harris.

It may be that I was with the wrong person or went on the wrong day but I found it a difficult scramble and was unable to see anything but cloud from approximately half way up. Not a peak I’d recommend.

Nice little jog around here, light undulations no serious hill. Would love to have taken a dog round here!

This was the first trail I went down was pretty good but It was absolutely chucking it down with rain. I think i would of enjoyed it more in the dry but it was still really good.

Very wet and boggy, to be expected at the start of December. We had fun jumping across streams and bogs. Had young children with us and they managed fine. Was good fun getting to the top of Seat How, (was a bit tricky getting down due to the wet). Kids didn’t climb Seat How.

Very good walk. The hardest part of the day is the initial first ascend. Very steep at times but as soon as you reach the top of that, it all levels out as is very pleasant to the top.

We went along Sharpe's edge and it's such a great venture.

Nice walk for all. With some more challenging section but nothing the dog couldn’t do.

Just watch where you park. Don’t want to come back to your car with a parking fine!

This truly is an epic walk! We parked down at the bottom as we were worried about the steep hill and didn't know there was a huge free car park at the top. So we'll definitely park at the top next time.
The views are spectacular! And there are loads of hidden surprises that I won't spoil but wow! Some bits are definitely not for the faint hearted.
As far as it being a loop, that is more difficult as the paths to come down the other side is not at all clear. We lost battery all of a sudden on the phone (at 40% so weird) so unfortunately the app was no help either. We ended up picking our way through the rough and even climbed down a stream but it was all good fun. We actually found the path at the bottom so next time we'll start that way and see where it joins the top. The path the other side is huge and unmissable.

We went on late October. The starting trail is easy and chill with amazing view of the lake and autumn leaves. It must have rained the previous day. Going down hill is difficult for us as it’s so slippery there are no stairs or enough gravels to support hikers. Overall experience is great and definitely recommend it.

great views

I believe this walk is moderate not easy. The walk is dependent on weather. We spoke to Two people who were both lost. Young children on this walk will need a lot of care. Please be careful on this difficult walk. It’s a five star walk for children (as long as they are able to walk for 17km) if you have good weather. But if you have low cloud and rain it’s very difficult.

This is a really fantastic walk. A man made path on one side rocky and difficult on the other. Many places to picnic.a really good first walk to discovering the lakes.

Beautiful hike, which is actually only 6 miles. you can also cut through some pastures, walking amongst the sheep.

Great views. Fully charge the camera batteries, you’ll need it.

A really nice day out. Bring plenty of water though on a hot day. Extending the loop round to Hay Stacks makes for a more strenuous, but satisfying day.

A nice route for a good summer’s day. Anti-clockwise will give the least resistance against the crowds.

A nice day out. Can be overcrowded and dull at times as a result. Drones are becoming an issue at the Tarn.

To avoid the crowds a scramble up the Ghyll next to the path goes with little difficulty but a good day in a dry spell is a must on top of the usual need for good scrambling experience. A nip up Jack’s Rake will bring you back to the crowds but is relatively simple for the amount of exposure it brings (Note: this is also a rock climbing location. Climbers can drop/knock down rocks as the climb. They will also get very angry if you crowd them doing their rope work or if you cross their ropes - this is rather dangerous and really shouldn’t need saying...sadly it does).

A pretty part of the world and if you have 2 cars a great single day outing.

Far more fun is to try and stay high for longer though - traversing High Street and Harter Fell gives nicer views and more enjoyment for not too much more effort. You can come back through Swindale and Keld or Mosedale and over the Shap Fells down to Keld again.

As a day hike it’s better in reverse.

Of note: there has been a lot of talk about seeing the village of Mardale this year. You haven’t, but a couple of tracks outside the village have been uncovered by the low water, but the village itself hasn’t been seen for a good 15-20yr. This had made for some awful traffic down the side of Haweswater and difficult parking: all the more reason to stay high and avoid the valley.

Loved all of it. Tranquil.
