Route from staveley?
Out and back from Staveley up Kentmere (Bridleway on west side of valley), over Garburn pass into Troutbeck. Up towards High Skelyghyll and drop down into Ambleside for an ice cream by the lake. Back in reverse direction until Kentmere, then take the bridleways up the west side of the valley dropping down to the road by HP plantation.
I’m sure there are ways of doing a loop around here, but most of these are ace climbs / descents either way so an out-and-back route is fine by me.Posted 5 years agoCraggyjimMember
Nan Bield would be an excellent route from there.
Staveley to Kentmere then East up and over to Sadgill. Up gatesgarth pass. Drop down to Haweswater (possible ice cream van?) then up and over Nan Bield and back down to Kentmere. The Nan Bield descent is a corker.
Possible short cut over Harter Fell to miss out Haweswater but it is cheeky.Posted 5 years agosmiththemainmanMember
Out on main road until right turn to Dubbs reservoir ,up past Limefitt park caravan site and onward and upwards over Highstreet.Cafe stop in Pooley Bridge and either blast back along the road and over Kirkstone Pass or pick up this route depending on time or physical state!!!!Posted 5 years agoBrianblessedMember
