More Walk Leaders Required

It would be helpful if we could have some walks starting and finishing in Carlisle, not too strenuous, about 6/7 miles.

We have quite a few members who do not have a car

and can't get to the start of walks

Start: Hartsop - 10.00am

 

 

We park at Hartsop, through the village grid ref: NY 409 130 - honesty box. We will be taking the easy way up to begin with - following Pasture Bottom/ Pasture Beck which rises roughly 450 mtrs over 2 miles to top out via Threshwaite Cove at Threshwaite Mouth. We then have a choice of doing Thornthwaite Crag/ Beacon and Grey Crag and back, or continuing up the scrambly bit (not difficult but both hands needed) of Threshwaite Crag up to Stoney Cove Pike . After that it is 2 plus miles down over Hartsop Dodd b4 the final steep descent.
