Jennings Adventure Ale Trails

The Armboth Fells at the eastern side of Derwentwater and the Dodds at the northern end of the Helvellyn range are real connoisseur's peaks.

They do not have the overt showiness of some of the Lakeland mountains but set foot on their high rounded crests and peer over their craggy flanks to discover abundant charms.

Straddling the deep trough occupied by Thirlmere, the two sets of fells split into two manageable hill days. The Armboth Fells are slightly smaller in terms of overall height but in terms of work both walks are fairly evenly matched. Both days are full and will require some fell walking experience to enjoy them fully.

Before setting off please make sure you plot the suggested route on OS maps and pack a compass. They are essential for a safe, enjoyable day in the hills!
