This is a fairly easy walk starting from Old Dungeon Ghyll and coming back to New Dungeon Ghyll. It was led by an HF volunteer - Pete McCloud.
Side Pike
The walk is mostly on established tracks and returns via part of the Cumbria Way after visiting Elterwater, a place of teahouses and pubs all very tolerant of the muddy booted.
Only the thin can follow this route.

On the SW side of Side Peak is this "squeeze".
Lingmoor Tarn with various circular islands like giant lily pads.

The route we took crossed boggy untracked land past this small lake called Lingmoor Tarn.
One unexpected "disaster" .. for this HF organised route we were bussed to start and finish. Except that the bus taking us from the end didn't make it. And so we had to wait for an hour in the pub. Awful - a test of resolve. :-)

NOTE: ALL information such as Ascent, Length and Creator time taken etc should be regarded as approximate. The creator's comments are opinions and may not be accurate or still correct.
Your time to complete will depend on your speed plus break time and your mode of transport. For walkers: Naismith's rule, a rough and often inaccurate estimate, suggests a time of 3h 31m + time stopped for breaks
NOTE: It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission.
