TERRAIN-MIXTURE OF STONE PATHS AND GRASS, EASY WALKING BUT STEEP DECENT FROM BROOM FELL

You can start the walk from the car park above or whinatter visitor centre, we have done both walks, but find this route quieter.

  • You follow the track from the back of the car park and past the buildings/farm, then follow the  main forestry road into the Aiken Beck Valley
  • The path is easy to follow approx. one mile from the car park a  post indicates the route
  • Straight ahead at a crossroads, follow this for another 1 mile 
  • Another marker post  starts the ascent through the forestry section to the summit, you spot the summit in front of you, where the path rises to the summit where a small stone area with a pole marks the summit.
  • When stood on the summit you will see two paths, one heading to Barf which is a good option if you have time, the path drops and approx. one mile to Barf. or take the path in the opposite direction to Broom fell, where a large Trig and shelter sits, the path is boggy in some sections but you follow the well trodden grass path to the summit.
  • The path down leaves from the summit steeply to the bottom path,.
