About trip

Circular route from Patterdale Notes: Use 1:250,000 OS Map to navigate - The path begins in the car park behind the hotel - After Arnison Crag to path is not shown on OS maps. However the path is well walked and easily followed around the left hand side of the hill to meet back up with the wall which leads to Trough Head. The path is approx 50m uphill of the wall. - After Trough Head follow the broken wall up the hill (keeping it to your right hand side), there is a track visible. - At the end of the broken wall continue upwards towards the fell top, or the path that leads towards Birks, whichever you find 1st. - Take care on descending the shoulder of Birks into Patterdale, especially in poor visibility/ conditions as the route is very steep
