Starting Point Information Centre
Roadside, Mungrisdale Common (Apronful of Stones)

I don't suppose there'll ever be a problem with finding a space along here. The narrow road seems to go on for ever with a seemingly endless choice of roadside places to park. The best place is next to the disused pits next to the area called Apronful of Stones.

From Carrock Fell looking across to Bowscale Fell and Blencathra.

Carrock Fells grassy ridge can be quite wet and boggy in places, but these can easily be avoided and a dry route can usually be found without too much difficulty.

Looking back to Carrock Fell again. This picture was taken close to the place where we left the ridge and headed across to High Pike.
