Kirkby Stephen to Garsdale (14 miles / 23 km)
We leave Kirkby Stephen following the River Eden for a short distance to Nateby. From here we climb the pathless slope of High Pike Hill to reach the ridge above Mallerstang. We follow this stunning high path, across High Seat and Hugh Seat to seek out the source of the Ure on Sails Fell. We then follow the young river as it runs downhill towards the valley below. We rejoin the low route near Hell Gill and follow a good path along The High Way and down to our destination at Garsdale Head.
