Set off: 09:30

Location – Meet Point:  Station Coppice Car Park, Thirlmere Nearest postcode: CA12 4TN.  NY 315170

Distance: approx 17km

Ascent: Steep ascent onto Sticks Pass and then undulating along the ridge

Finish Time: 18.00

Rating: Moderate-Hard ; this is an unreccied walk I assume there will be rocky and varied terrain, with stiff ascents at times!

Route Description: From the carpark we head south to Stybeck Fall turning left at the falls heading up a very steep section of path next to the fall.  We reach a crossroads of paths at Sticks Pass where we turn left to Stybarrow (843), we then drop down to Watson’s Dodd (789) before ascending again to Great Dodd (857) and then dropping to Clough Head (726).  From Clough Head we set off in a north easterly direction to reach the track at Hausewell Brow, on reaching it we turn left and head down the hill to Hill Top Farm.  Crossing the road at the farm we head to Bridge House to cross the water and then turn left to follow the footpaths through fields alongside St Johns Beck back to our start point.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT I HAVE NOT DONE THIS ROUTE BEFORE AND SO DISTANCE, TIME AND DIFFICULTY RATINGS ARE GUESTIMATES BASED ON LOOKING AT THE MAP
