Route suggestions
Route suggestion: Ashness Bridge - Low Moss - Bleaberry Fell
2 mile / approx 1300 ft ascent
++++++++++++++++++++
Setting off from the every popular Ashness Bridge, this route takes you from one the most popular tourist spots to an area of quiet seclusion, all within a couple of miles.
The path at each end of the route is very good, easy to follow and most importantly, dry under foot. The middle section between the top of Cat Gill and the sheepfold can be extremely wet and boggy. On more than one occasion there has been so much water on the ground I've seen it simply running down the fellside.

Route suggestion: Nest Brow - Castlerigg - Rakefoot Farm - Low Moss - Bleaberry Fell
2.9 mile / approx 1300 ft ascent
++++++++++++++++++++
If you're passing this close to Walla Crag it seems rude not to walk few yards to its summit. But, for those who are making Bleaberry Fell their main (or only) fell on a walk this route does just that.
Once you've successfully dodged the cars speeding over Nest Brow, you have a lovely walk across the fields near Rakefoot Farm. This brings you briefly onto the Castlerigg road and after only a few minutes walk you're then on the footpath (track) leading up to Walla Crag and or Bleaberry Fell. Much of this route is the same as the previous one and as I said, it can be extremely wet under foot for a while.
