Route suggestions

Route suggestion: Mungrisdale - South side of The Tongue - Bowscale Fell
2.3 mile / approx 1500 ft ascent
++++++++++++++++++++
A straightforward route mostly on good easy to follow paths. this changes once you reach the area below the summit where it can be quite wet under foot. Still easy to follow though.

 

Route suggestion: Mungrisdale - Raven Crags - Bowscale Fell
2.5 mile / approx 1500 ft ascent
++++++++++++++++++++
After an initial steep section through Raven Crags, the route then becomes more gentle and walk up the grassy fellside makes for very pleasant walking indeed. Don't forget to take a slight detour from the path to look down onto Bowscale Tarn.
