Local Walks 2- School Knott

This week we’re going on another walk that starts near to the hotel, this is a pleasant walk up to the summit of School Knott and School Knott tarn with beautiful views across the fells. This walk can be a little steep at times and does include some rougher terrain. I’d suggest leaving around 2 hours for this walk.

Leave the hotel through the back drive the same as if you were going to walk up Brant Fell but instead of turning right to go up Post Knott continue on along the Dales Way until you cross Lickbarrow Road at which point go through the gates on both sides of the road and continue along the Dales Way.

Follow the Dales Way until you join a road that leads onto the B5284. Once on the B5284 turn left and after approx. 300m take the path to the left which will take you back onto the Dales Way. Continue along until you cross Scout Beck, where you will see a split in the path, here you should take the path heading to your right. Follow this path and you will arrive at School Knott tarn from which you can head up to the summit of School Knott. To come back, simply retrace your footsteps the way you came.

Let us know if you decide to do this walk!
