Fell-walking in miniature with possibly the highest view-quality to height ratio in the Lakes, but there is one mercilessly steep ascent. It is good for those starting off in fell-walking or those who would like a day off from the big stuff. From near the village of Cleator Moor, walk through a grand valley and then steeply up to the top of Dent, where there is a surprisingly spectacular view. Then make a gentle descent through pine trees where red squirrels are being re-established. The start is at a car park at the top of Nannycatch Road but a longer alternative for those using public transport is mentioned in the Additional Information section. The view, which was enthusiastically described by Wainwright in 1973, hasn't changed much and includes Scafell, Scafell Pike, a glimpse of Ennerdale Water, the Isle of Man and Scotland. The stiles all seem to be dog-friendly.
