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.
