One of the Lake District's finest horseshoe walks, not technically difficult but it's a strenuous test of fitness with plenty of ups and downs. The walk goes over Yoke; Ill bell; Froswick; Mardale Ill bell Harter Fell Kentmere Pike and Shipmans Knott and should take around 7-8 hours taken at a steady pace.
Parking in Kentmere is very restricted but I have checked with the owner of Maggs Howe B&B and the seasonal car park near Low Bridge will be open . Even so can I ask that folk car share and let me or Janet know if you are intending to join the walk.
Cars will need to leave the Sands by 7.30 am. Back to Carlisle (hopefully) by around 6.30pm
Given the distance and the remoteness the walk will be weather dependant.
