Hay Stacks

Today was our 100th family walk in the Lake District.  And it was an epic!  Hay Stacks stands 597 metres (1958 feet) in height.  But starting at Honister gives you an advantage as that is 332 metres (1089 feet).  This also makes it a Wainwright fell, to tick off the list! It is 2.2 miles there.  We did an out and back so 4.4 miles in total.

Alcock Tarn, Grasmere

You’ll find Alcock Tarn above Grasmere, in the central Lake District.  It’s beautiful in its own right, and also offers amazing views out over to Windermere, Coniston, Elterwater, Grasmere, Easedale Tarn and beyond!  We did a 2.5 mile clockwise circular route, starting at the Swan Hotel at Grasmere.
