|Haystacks and Fleetwith Pike|
Press F5 if some photo's don't load
walk starts at the small car park at Gatesgarth and then follows the
path up to Scarth Gap and onto Haystacks. Thiswas Alfred Wainwrights'
favourite mountain and where is ashes were scattered. From the summit,
the fantstic path passes inonimate tarn onthe way to the 2nd summit of
the walk at Fleetwith Pike. The views all the way around are stunning.
The decent of Fleetwith is however very steep as it drops back down to
Gatesgarth. This walk can be done in reverse, but the ascent of
Fleetwith Pike is extremely tough.
