GRAGARETH 2635FT

LANCASHIRE'S HIGHEST COUNTY TOP ALSO BORDERS THE YORKSHIRE DALES

PARKING-Just before Leck fell house, parking LA6 2JP nearest post code, its a long road from Ireby but just before the farm you will see parking.

MILES- 4-5 miles approx.

ASCENT-350m approx.

FACILITIES- No facilities on route



Continue from the car park up to the end of the tarmac road just before Leck fell House and Go through the gate on the right side on a green lane/track.



You can walk up the right hand side hill at any point as it leads to the cairns, we carried on this path a little more then found a faint path up to the stones/cairns




It is steep but not for long., you go through a big boulder field but Soon reach the three cairns known as The Three Men of Gragareth, this always makes a good snack stop to admire the views around you, just take care over the boulders as some are quite loose.



From here a more obvious path leads up gentler slopes heading towards the trig point, we had clear weather so could just make out the paths, in poor visibility it would be difficult without a map/compass.


We continued to climb up to the summit and took some photos at the trig point before returning the same way, you can see the faint paths in the grass which are easy to follow, after rain they get quite boggy, but if like my kids they love it after the rain as they get to slide down hill.
