Great Dodd lung burster

Updated: Jan 30, 2019

Get your Lungs bursting....

Short on time? Try this one.

Starts at the same point as the last post, Dowthwaite Head car park, at the start of the Old Coach Road. Follow the Coach Road to the Bridge over the beck and immediately afterwards look for the sign "Great Dodd two miles". Follow the trail up, up and up all the way to the cairn at the top. Catch your breath and beautiful views then back down again. One of my favourite training runs. Its about 40 mins. up and 20 back down... Gets quite wet underfoot in parts so wear shoes with SG lugs. Enjoy! Need more info contact me on andyrichkemp@gmail.com @SlapseeR .
