When I heard I was visiting the Lakes I made sure this was a mountain to achieve!
We started from the town, walked up the copper mines and to the top and we weren't disappointed!
The views were fantastic, the walk was interesting and gave a level of challenge that wasn't too taxing and allowed for stops to explore.
It was busy on the day we went so the mountain itself lost a bit of that isolated feeling that we enjoy when walking... especially when we had to wait for people to walk down past us (as at some points the route narrows).
At the top, again it was busy but the views were fabulous!
We continued along the ridge to Swirl How then down Prison Band, past the reservoir and down past the YHA back in to town.
This is definitely a walk to cross off when visiting the Lakes. Start early to avoid the crowds of families and take a camera!
