Lake District 4 - Harter Fell & Stepping Stones

11 May 2004

 Harter Fell

George by the trig point, near the top of the Duddon/Eskdale Harter Fell (654m / 2146ft). Although the weather had been beautiful when we left Broughton, by the time we reached the summit 90 minutes later, it was thick mist

We ascended via the public footpath from Birks farm straight up the side of the fell, but it was diverted significantly due to the major forestry clearance underway.

We returned via the Eskdale/Duddon col and the forest road, which seemed much shorter than on my previous visit, on that occasion returning from Scafell Pike
