Carron Crag

This walk takes you to the highest point in the Grizedale Forest and starts at the Grizedale Visitor Centre. It follows the Forestry Commission's marker posts making navigation straightforward.

Whilst walking round the forest keep an eye out for the distinctive shape of the Red Kite. Three batches of juveniles have been released, 2010, 2011 and the final batch was in August 2012. Not all will stay close to the forest, but inevitably some will.

The information boards and leaflet recommend allowing 2 hours to complete the walk. We found this a bit keen even in the wet and windy conditions of the day we wanted to look around and take our time.

The visitor centre has a pay and display car park.
