Aira Force car park – Aira Force – Hind Crag – Bernard Pike – Green Hill (450) – Gowbarrow Fell (451) – High Force – Aira Force car park

Distance: 4 miles     Total Ascent: 614 metres     Time Taken: 1 hour 45 minutes

Weather: Starting off dull and overcast but quickly turning wet and wild. 8°C.

The weather has returned to dull and wet this week and today’s walk was a circuit of Gowbarrow Park taking in Aira Force waterfall. The heavens opened when I was up on Green Hill, backed by a strong wind so I was glad to get down to the relative shelter of High Force. Ten minutes later and I think I would have missed the views altogether.
