Guided walk to Red Tarn (John Muir Trust / Mountain Equipment)
As part of our joint presence at Kendal Mountain Festival, John Muir Trust and Mountain Equipment invite you to join John Muir Trust staff on a tour of the land in the Trust’s care. We'll lead a small group up to the Red Tarn via Mires Beck to show you interesting features of this special wild landscape and explain the John Muir Trust management plans for the land which includes the summit of Helvellyn, Striding Edge and Swirral Edge.
The walk will last approximately 4-5 hours over rough ground and will involve steep climbs. A good degree of fitness and hillwalking experience is essential.
Check the weather before heading out – bring suitable walking footwear, warm and waterproof clothing and plenty of drinking water and snacks. John Muir Trust / Mountain Equipment reserve the right to cancel the excursion in the event of severe weather conditions.
Meeting point - John Muir Trust base camp, Ullswater Information Centre car park, Glenridding CA11 0PD.
Cost - the excursion is free of charge, cash donations to the Trust welcome on the day (suggested donation £10).
