Garburn Pass

 


Garburn Pass

Garburn Pass has long been a favourite of mine, not only for the superb views through Troutbeck valley, but for the atmosphere I always feel the place has. It may be difficult to explain that walking up here feels something just a little more then special.

The route links Troutbeck and Kentmere by crossing the lower ground on the ridge between Yoke and Sallows. This is another centuries old route used by the Drovers and the Packhorse trains and no doubt many others prior to that. The crossing is steep in places, quite rough under foot and also very easy to follow. Navigation should no be a problem here.

Although this actually named "Pass" it if often referred to as Garburn Road.
