Route Description:

This is a circular walk beginning at the reservoir car park. We’ll start by heading north, skirting around the fell with views over Shap and its Abbey. We’ll then swing back around and head south west in to Swindale. Walking the entire length of the dale, we’ll reach the end and head uphill past waterfalls towards Mosedale.  If everyone agrees, this section could involve a minor scramble past the main fall.  Past the falls we continue up in to Mosedale and head towards the cottage, although we don’t go as far and head over a bridge back along a track towards the reservoir. If people agree and time allows, there’s a chance to bag Scam Matthew and Seat Robert as they’re not too far off the track back to the car park.

Preparation: Please check weather and bring appropriate gear and hiking shoes, also including plenty of water if the weather is good.
