Mytholmroyd – Churn Milk Joan

4.54 Miles – Circular – Steep – Sturdy Shoes Required

This was a lovely work from Mytholmroid station, up the hill, the views were beautiful. There were sheep, cows and a bug hill but it was absolutely worth it. There’s lots of chance for off leading, but on the hill there’s sheep and in the open fields part there is a chance of cattle.

On the way home we made a quick detour to visit Magic Rock Tap


Loughrigg Fell

4.51 miles – Circular – Steep rocky paths – Possibility of mud

This was the hardest walk we did while in the lakes this time. Quite a steep climb initially, then a more gentle downhill. Great change to look in Rydall Cave and the views are beautiful. Charlie was off lead for pretty much the whole walk.

We took a little detour as we left the top of the hill to a small tarn so Charlie can have a swim, so there’s a small bit of the map that takes you off the path, but it can be ignored. Also, if you use the ViewRanger map, it went a bit loopy when I went in the cave, but it’s still fine.
