Information

Similar to High Pike, you won't get to the top of the hill on your course,if you want to go there the best approach is from the East side of the hill, starting from High Brow.

The absence of trees will help visibility but there is a good amount of contour detail to challenge runners. 

Things to do in the area include the Threlkeld Mining Museum where you can see equipment of the type used in the area for mining minerals, barytes and slate.The Keswick Pencil museum is a quirky museum telling the story of pencil making in the area following the discovery of graphite in Borrowdale. For something to do outside there is the Greta Gorge walking along the old railway line as it criss crosses the river Greta.
