The Boo Tarn route gives incredible views of Coniston Water and as you get further into the climb you are rewarded with glimpses of Windermere to the east, Morcombe Bay to the south and the Duddon Estuary to the south west. The Boo Tarn route gets very little foot traffic and a series of strategically placed caches allows you to pick your own way up the fell.

Great thanks for the route we couldn’t find Boo Tarn without this. Only saw two other hikers on first half of route then came down quarry path that was packed. Definitely do this one. Path isn’t too clear and I think we were off and on it but made it thanks to this app/ route.
