Hill Top to Moss Eccles Tarn2 miles (2.5 km)Hill Top is the 17th century former home of children's author and illustratorBeatrix Potter.

This nice short walk is ideal for visitors to Hill Top to try after or before their visit. It takes you up to the lovely Moss Eccles Tarn - Beatrix Potter owned the tarn and donated it to the National Trust after her death. It served as an inspiration for some of her stories. Alfred Wainwrightdescribed it as the 'most attractive tarn on Claife Heights'. It's stocked withwater liliesand fish, and surrounded bypretty rhododendrons. A pleasant walking trail leads up to the tarn and you can return the same way or through other woodland tracks.

The walk begins at the parking lot in the pretty village of Threlkeld. You then climb Blencathra (or Saddleback) via Scales Fell, Scales Tarn and Sharp Edge. Sharp Edge is a challenging scramble along a narrow crest. Alfred Wainright describes it thus: 'The crest itself is sharp enough for shaving (the former name was razor edge) and can be traversed onlya chevalat some risk of damage to tender parts.'
From the summit there are fabulous views of the mountains ofGalloway, theSouthern Uplands, the Border hills, the Cheviots, the Penninesand North Wales. Derwent WaterandThirlmerelakes are also visible.
The walk descends to Knowe Crags and Blease Farm before returning to Threlkeld.

This final section includes waterside walking along the River Greta.
The summit stands at 368m (1,207ft) and the views of Derwent Water, Keswick and down the valley ofBorrowdaleare stunning. This is a popular walk because of its proximity to Keswick. It is also a relatively straightforward climb on well defined paths.
