TEBAY- EDEN EWE-NIQUE LONNIN
Access the Dales is amazing and thanks to them I was able to hire a tramper to go in the hills. they have hubs available throughout yorkshire, they hire them for free and ask for donations. This hub is a working farm and has 2 routes available which can be done during the time you hire the tramper.
The Hub also has a accessible cottage to hire so lease check them out.
👩🦽Mobility scooter required for this walk as its up hill on uneven ground. Bpoking is required through Access the Dales.

🥾4 miles to do both of the routes given to you on arrival
Starting from the farm, head down to the fork in the track. Turning right the track continues up pass the farm and continues out onto the fells.
Beware there is livestok on the fells so take care both cattle and fell ponies.
The track is rough and in places it is bumpy but the tramper manages fine, here is a point to turn around on this walk just at the end of this track however for the more experienced driver, it is possible to come off the bridleway and climb to Powson Knott which is what we did, the path is faint but the tramper managed ok navigating the bog, we did walk it in Spring after a wet couple of weeks.
Turn back the same way if you choose and do walk 2.
The path is well trodden once your on it, care is needed though for boggy ground and pot holes, the tramper managed fine and any steeper sections i zig zagged up the fell side. It felt great to be here, so remote with amazing views.
The views from the summit are amazing, even more so when you havent been able to get in the hills since I havent been able to walk. We stopped at the summit for a while just taking in the views. We returned back the same way towards the farm to pick up the path for walk 2.
This route is a short but beautiful little walk to the pack horse bridge. The route follows a series of well defined tracks, series of small waterfalls behind the bridge.
