|From Torver we headed South down the tarmac lane towards Haveriggholme, leaving the dull central lakes behind.|
|It wasn't long before we were on our first offroad climb on the bridleway over "The Knotts"|
|A bit of road work then this byway past Wallenrigg which had been tarmaced in the not to distant past!|
|From this ridge we had an excellent view over to Stickle Pike and the bridleways we were heading for|
|First though there was some pushing up the steep track in Penny Crag Wood|
|Eventually we crested the ridge and started our descent into our goal of Dunnerdale.|
|This is a great track much less used than many of the other Lakes Trails|
|Nick on the final piece of track, the sign said "Broughton Mills 11/2 miles, it felt a lot further!|
|Off route, but to good to miss Ulpha Post Office provided Ice Creams and Coffee|
|Then it was up the steep climb of iln Bank followed by this wonderful singletrack which contours under Ravens Crag to Stephenson Ground.|
|The weather had improved throughout the day, here we look down into the Lickle Valley|
|Never miss a ford photo opportunity....Nick as we approached Stephenson Ground|
|Our route back too us into Apple Tree Forest....it all seemed up hill!|
But from the top of the wood it was all downhill back to the cars at Torver.
We all agreed it had been great day, I'd like to say Thanks for the company!
