Sun 2 Nov - High Street and Kidsty Pike

A high level walk starting from the peaceful valley of Mardale, up the gently rising slope of Riggindale crag. We pass by the cliffs that have been home to the Lakeland golden eagle, and up higher to reach the historic Roman road on High Street (summit at 828m). The top is fairly flat but steadily descends to the recognisable peak of Kidsty Pike. The path then leads down to the shores of Haweswater and back to the car park.

The route is weather dependent and an alternative route will be followed in the event of poor conditions. Please contact the walk leader if you are thinking of coming.

Distance: 7 miles
Time: 4.5 hrs
Total ascent: 700m
Grade: 3
Start: 10.00 am at RSPB car park, Haweswater. Grid ref NY469107
Leader: Phil (07958 698905)
