OL19 - Howgill Fells and Upper Eden Valley
A linear, full-day mountain (above 600m) walk in national park Yorkshire Dales (England) starting at Garsdale Head, Cumbria, about 20km (roughly 13 miles) long and unsuitable for families with children, prams/pushchairs, wheelchairs.
Wild Boar Fell is, if nothing else, a great name for a hill. Luckily, it's also a great hill - big and certainly wild (not seen any boars, though) - and at 708m, higher than one of the much-loved 'big three', Penyghent. This route, from Garsdale to Kirkby Stephen, is a long day across pretty wild country for the Dales. The route is taken from the excellent 'Green Networks of the Dales' book by Colin Speakman - an essential purchase for any Yorkshire-bound car-free walker.

To rate the walk, simply move your mouse over the stars to the left and click when it indicates how you like the walk.
The best way to enter time and date is by entering the date first (e.g. 'tomorrow' or 'next week Wednesday') then the time you want to leave (or arrive), e.g. '8:49am'. It would look like 'next week Wednesday 8:49am'. Naturally, you can go completely old-fashioned and write something like '01 June, 8:43am' like they did it in the good ole days.
We've done our best to teach the machine about time and dates, especially the importance of tea-time on a sunny afternoon, but if he upsets you: don't worry too much. Happens to the best of us.
