There’s a nice singletrack contouring around the West side of Yoke and Froswick thats always quiet. Best going over Ill Bell summit in the middle though. All rideable, best riding Northward if you use the singletrack sections.
Wansfell is good riding (best climbing West, descending East) but has a chequered history of angry landowners, farmers and local dog walkers due to the number of folk riding it from Ambleside, not ideal for weekend daytime riding unless you can be off Wansfell by 9am.
Possibly doing the High Street/Nan Bield circuit this weekend. Rather than heading up the valley to High Street, what’s the path over Yoke, Ill Bell and Froswick like from the Garburn Pass? Rideable in either direction?
Also, on a similar vein, anyone any experience of riding over Wansfell Pike from Troutbeck, up Nanny Lane I think its called?
started off the ride carrying up Wansfell from Ambleside. Plenty of walkers and all happy. Nice hoon down Nannys Lane on the other side. Got lost in the carvan park trying to get up to the Garburn road, and then rode up to the pass for the ridge. I’ll admit to wussing out of the top bit off Ill Bell (and some of the next bit too). Nee dot up my game a bit there really. Off-camber singletrack across the scree around Froswick was a bit but-clenching at times too. Brilliant!
Lovely contouring singletrack around to Nan Bield as promised, and the drop down is always good. Finished with blasting down Jenkins Crag which was a right laugh.
