Circular Fell run from Braithwaite

Leave Braithwaite on the Swinside road. Shortly after leaving the village bear right on a track going uphill towards a farm. Pass through the farm and pick up the public footpath going steeply uphill. Bear right and continue to climb steeply up Barrow


(Picture shows the view back down from Barrow towards Braithwaite)

From the top of Barrow follow the path down to Barrow Door, ignore the paths dropping left towards Stoneycroft and right back to Braithwaite. Instead follow the path straight ahead as it skirts around Outerside then climbs up a rocky path towards Sail Pass. Climb steeply up the narrow path to the top of Sail Pass then turn right up the zig zagging path to the top of Sail


Looking back towards Sail Pass from Sail

Path down from Coledale Hause to Force Crag mine

(The picture shows your eventual route down from Coledale Hause passing below Force Crag mine).

Continue up the obvious path to the top of Sail and continue on steeply down to the saddle before climbing steeply again to the top of Eel Crag

 (The picture shows the cairn on the top of Eel Crag. Sadly when I was last up there the cairn was on it's side!)

From the Cairn drop down the obvious path towards Grassmoor then bear right on the path going to Coledale Hause.

Path from Eeel Crag to Coledale Hause

From Coledale Hause follow the steep rocky path down passing below Force Cragg Mine. Cross Coledale Beck and follow the mine road down towards Braithwaite.  

As the road passes above the village look out for the public footpath on the right. Follow this path as it drops down through bracken and joins the road just prior to the village.
