This is intended to be a basic route guide only so you will need to follow a map and or the GPX file.
If you would like to receive by e mail a free GPX file (track converted from the trail we walked) produced by our Satmap Active 10 GPS please contact us quoting Braith Grise. Please note this file is for personal use only and must not be further reproduced without our explicit permission. Those wishing to use the file commercially should make their intentions clear when contacting us. Please note we can not guarantee this file will work successfully on any other GPS or that the data might be corrupted in transfer but we are confident, in most cases when it is loaded into a robust GPS, it will greatly assist navigation.
Start from Braithwaite up the Whinlatter Pass road. Turn left into unofficial parking space (by road sign to official parking) on left hand side of road. Take the footpath up steps at the right hand side of parking area signed to Grisedale. Follow the path up steps then steadily uphill before crossing a stile with a very generous dog paddle. Follow clear path all the way to Grisedale Pike then on to Hopegill Head. Then left (south) down to cross paths then left (east) – just above the stream on your right - and follow the path all the way down passed the mine workings. When on the made track after the mine look for footpath sign diagonally right and follow path down to reach road on the edge of Braithwaite.
