Greenfell and Nine Standards Circuit

 UK Area: England
 Details: 14.4km, 529m ascent/descent, 3:45hr. Park at head of the road from Hartley. The route follows the Coast to Coast route from the gate onto the fells as far as Hartley Fell. At the post marking a branch in the bridleways the route leaves the main track and is completely "off piste" (no paths) via High Greyrigg and Greenfell Crag to Rowantree Hill. Here it descends to a track via a line of grouse butts before following the edge of the fells to eventually meet a track going to Stowgill. At the cattle grid, the track enters private property but this can be detoured by following the field boundary to rejoin the track above Stowgill. The route than climbs steadily on a shooters' track virtually all the way to Nine Standards Rigg. From here the Coast to Coast path can be followed back to the start. Walked 19/8/15

  • A large portion of this walk is off any path. The going is a mixture of heather, grass and bog - gaiters and good navigation skills reqd!
