Pennine Way High Point, Hadrian’s Wall to Dufton (2 days)
This route follows the Pennine Way long distance footpath from Hadrian’s Wall to the small village of Dufton. On the way we travel along river banks and cross over the highest point of the Pennines, Cross Fell, standing at nearly 3000 ft high. Eden Outdoor Adventures will organise the logistics of this one way trip so you can enjoy a fantastic section of this major long distance footpath! On the way we pass by Whitley Castle, the only Roman Fort on the Maiden Way, near the high market town of Alston and then cross the Pennines on ancient bridleways making our way to the high point of Cross Fell, before gradually descending to the pretty village of Dufton with its mining heritage and lovely local walks.
A route with a moderate amount of up and down requiring a moderate level of fitness and some previous summer hill walking experience.
