We really enjoyed this route. It’s very well paved and rocky the whole way round, with some mild scrambling involved in places. All in all it is quite challenging and took us around 6 hours in wet and snowy conditions. We parked just under a mile up the road at the National Trust, which was great with lots of space and clean toilets.

Really liked this trail. It’s good because the trail is mostly rocky so there aren’t too many boggy areas to walk through. We used the national trust car park (which added about 1.5 miles in total to the trail) but there are a lot of spaces and clean toilets there.

Right side cut out diversion before or after tarn and go straight down or to end of valley and then up avoid Robinson pike? Freelance towards Mountainbike trail down stream

Today’s trail, was the most challenging of our days so far. Definitely not for the faint hearted. We added to the route, and decided to scale Scarfell Pike. While the weather was dry, the cloud cover came in at about 1 PM. A hard day, a challenging day but an incredibly rewarding one

This is a trail I will have to revisit as the weather was very poor and visibility was extremely low. Definitely a trail I will come back to, some very steep ascents, maybe one for the summer or even a clear day.
