Mallerstang Edge guided walkKirkby Stephen | | CA17 4QN
A full day walk a part of a small group along the wild and beautiful Mallerstang Edge in the part of Cumbria that falls within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
We take the train from Kirkby Stephen to Garsdale then walk back, initially along past of the long distance Lady Anne Way path, with far reaching views down the Mallerstang Valley and across to Wild Boar Fell. We then follow a feint grassy track that leads upwards to Mallerstang Edge.
This is a hilly walk, over really wild countryside. Some of the route is pathless. A good level of fitness and the the ability to feel comfortable walking over rough and sometimes boggy ground is therefore important. The distance is about 13 miles/21km with approximately 750 metres of ascent. Proper hiking boots and outdoor clothing are required.
Advance booking and payment via the web link is essential.
