High Pike is a Lakeland fell on the very edge of the National Park and visited by only a few fell-walkers. The fell is surrounded by broad, grassy slopes and many disused mines from a busier past. This route follows country lanes to gain entry to a path that runs along Carrock Beck and follows miners' tracks to gain 'some height and get up onto the moors south-east of High Pike. The path to the summit is easy to follow and the views are totally unrestricted to the north and east and stretch as far as Scotland if the air is clear.

The descent follows miners' tracks through old mine workings with open hushes where they built a damn at the top and released the water to wash the topsoil away and expose the veins within the earth. Once past the workings the route follows the same miners' track and lanes back to the parking area.
