Those keen to go walking
in the Lake District and enjoy seeing a classic example of a mountain tarn can do so in a trek organised by the national park authority for Saturday April 3rd. Walking equipment
including walking boots
are described as "essential" for the eight-mile walk to Scales Tarn, which is set to take six hours.
The tarn lies in a deep corrie below Blencathra, one of the highest fells in the north of the national park at 2,848 ft.
Staring at Mungrisdale Village Hall, the event will also cross Souther Fell and will offer "stunning views", the authority has stated.
People keen to undertake the challenge should just turn up on the day at 10:30 BST with a packed lunch.
The northern ridge of the corrie above Scales Tarn consists of Sharp Edge, a notoriously narrow ridge often used as a means of climbing up Blencathra.
Scales Tarn is one of two mountain tarns on the eastern flank of the Skiddaw fells, the other being Bowscale Tarn, which according to legend contains two immortal fish.
