GREAT MELL FELL 1760FT
SITUATED IN THE EASTERN FELLS WAINWRIGHT 155
Easy wainwright, ideal first time summit
PARKING-A rough surfaced lane located one mile north east from Matterdale End is the starting point of this walk
MILES- 2 circular approx
FACILITIES- Non on route
TERRAIN-Grass paths, stone paths, rough and boggy in some sections after rain but easy to follow.
Limited parking at the end of a lane leading to the start of the walk, ignore the first gate/stile next to the National Trust sign, it takes you around a path which makes a circuit of the fell, pass this to go to a second gate/stile which is about 180 yards from the start of the lane.
The paths are easy to follow, you may be lucky and see the fell ponies, but please dont feed them as they may be on a special diet.
There is a Small cairn on the summit, but a great place to stop and admire the views.
You can return the same way or make it a circular walk.
This is a Easy walk we did this with a friends little boy who was just 2, Ariya was 3 and they both managed fine with a couple of snack stops and of the course a roll down the hill afterwards.
