This is a short walk but has a steep hike for a short while. Tis good for the lungs! Start below Parlick Fell off Startifants Lane, there’s usually a parking space but it can get busy.
As you go past the house sitting at the foot of Parlick go up the steps to the left. There is a path that leads you to the west side of the hill. Having not put on my boots for a while I was a bit rusty and I was knackered by the time I got to the top. But when the views open up to show the bigger fells it looks pretty spot-on. I marched up to the cairn and had a chat with a geezer who was about to jump off the hill. I then made my way back down the hill, crossing the gulley and descending to the cottage where I started. I practically ran down and next time I think I might roll – there are literally fifty ways down the hill.
