Car Walk:Sands:9.00am





We start out from High Row, travelling along the Old Coach Road until crossing the bridge/ford at Groove Beck for a grassy track on the left.This broad, ascending ridge of springy turf i.e. bog-wet, leads in the distance, to Great Dodd, passing the craggy lump of Randerside. At Great Dodd, there is a shelter just off left at the summit should we want a break. We then go south west to Little Dodd then north west to Calfhow Pike. We carry on north east north to reach Clough Head where, depending on the weather, we have great views of Blencathra. We then travel down east to reach the Old Coach Road where we travel back via Mariel Bridge to High Row where we started.
