- Nan Bield Loop – How Long?
Possibly have a weekend shift coming up on Sunday in Shap. Thought I might head up saturday and get a ride in before dark. So if I park at haweswater, head up nan bield pass, down to kentmere, across to Sadgill, back up and over Gatesgarth pas and down to the car park by haweswater, how long will it take? looms to be 20ish km – do-able in 2hrs?
I wont get started untill about 2pm, so dont want to get caught out!

Nan Bield Pass from Haweswater to Kentmere is the best part of 2hrs on it’s own. Add in the total bastard of a climb over Gatescarth and you’ll be looking at about 4hrs in total. Budget on 5 to be on the safe side.
That’s not a joke.Posted 9 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
