It was going to be a hot day so I chose to do a short walk with excellent views. I set off early and drove to Eskdale, I was ready to walk at 7.45am.
Jubilee Bridge is at the bottom of the Hardknott Pass. There is parking for about ten cars. It crosses the River Esk.
The path through the bracken.
View back to some purple heather.
The Eskdale valley is opening up now.
View in the other direction towards The Woolpack Inn.
Now I can see all the mountains. Scafell on the left, Bowfell straight ahead.
I head around the bend into some shade, as the sun is below an outcrop.
Looking across to Eskdale Moor.
Eel Tarn. Boat How and Whin Rigg behind.
Green Crag on the left and Crook Crag right. Behind is Stainton Pike Yoadcastle and Devoke Water.
A closer view of Devoke Water.
I now join in with the main path.
Summit cairn on the left.
On the left is Scafell and Slight Side then Scafell Pike, Great End and Esk Pike. To the right of the cairn is Bowfell and Crinkle Crags.
It was a bit warm!
View down to Hardknott Roman Fort.
Panorama from summit, left click to enlarge, click again to return.
View down on the Hardknott Pass with Hard Knott behind. Bowfell left of centre.
The Wrynose Pass with Cockley Beck below.
Seathwaite Tarn with Coniston Old Man above it and Dow Crag to the right.
The view as I head back down.
Lots of bracken, but paths easy to follow.
Bracken taller than me!
Lovely view of the valley.
More purple heather.

Back at Jubilee Bridge, most of the car spaces are taken now.
The walk was about four miles and took me three hours and fifteen minutes. Great views, but was still very hot despite the early start.
