Connor's Dilemma is approximately nine miles long and is a very pleasant family walk which can be as long or as short as need be. Once you leave the car you are on 'open access land' that has beautiful scenery and plenty of long views, so the kids can run off to the front quite safely.

Once at the river you will see a new bridge (as at 03 September 2013, it is still in the process of being built). You may cross here, but the river itself is not deep at all, but can be slippery, so care is needed. The walk uses the main footpath that can be seen on the map and is very easy to follow. It could even be a good area to teach the young'uns how to map-read. All the tracks are easy to see and walk on, though when you reach Hespeck Raise you do need to take a bearing and march on it, unless you are happy to trust your own sense of direction. All the area is very safe and a beautiful area to be in.

Walkers must note that at certain times of year the fells can be closed, so it is wise to check beforehand.
