From Biker Fell Road there and back via Great Crag and Broad Crag. Would have been very boggy if it hadn't been for the dry weather. Worth a trip for the 360' views of the Western Lakes and round to Morecambe Bay The Esk Estuary and Isle of ManNeilb01/07/2018
From Harter Fell. Starting to tire by now in the heat. Great views over to the Scafell range, Black Combe dominated the view seawards. A long old slog back to the car at Hardknott Pass but a good day all round!James McKnight30/06/2018

Circuit of Harter Fell starting from small car park at Jubilee Bridge taking path out to below Dow Crag then cut up on dry turf/heather all the way to Green Crag. Wet underfoot thereafter as I swung round by Birks then headed north to Hard Knot (up and down from col) returning by the impressive Roman fort.SS28/04/2018
Parked at the top of Hard Knott Pass, Hard Knott, Harter Fell & Green Crag back via Grassguards & Hard Knott forest.Stu Percival27/04/2018
With Chris, walked from home down the valley then up from Low Birker. Met several others also doing it because it was a Wainwright, I think we are the only ones that actually do it because we like it! Found route back via Penny Hill more easily than previously avoiding the really boggy bit. Back home by 1600.karentracey19/04/2018
Walk from the top of Hardknott Pass up and back to Hardknott picking up my rucksack from the car and walking on to Harter Fell. Descent and crossing of the normally boggy fell onto Green Crag returning through the woods to Birks and climbing back over the hill back to the car. Enjoyable beer at SouthwaitePhilip A11/04/2018

From the Birker Fell road. Little Crag, Great Crag, Meeting Hill, Broad Crag, Green Crag and Crook Crag. Thankfully the boggy ground was frozen solid. Windy and bitterly cold.Lazylizzie04/03/2018
With DW from Woolpack. Doctor Bridge and up the zigzag. Early sun gave way to couldy dampness. Route one from Green Crag top to Harter base at the edge of the Duddon plantation. Very wet and made for heavy boots, but we amateurs made a decent speed up what is a decent grade to Harter Fell tops. Very quiet today. Just one other group seen in 6 hours.

Parked at Birks Bridge. Green Crag, Crook Crag, Dow Crag, Jubilee Bridge, Border End, Hard Knott. Excellent views of surrounding snow covered fells. Boggy and icy conditions in places with soft snow on Hard Knott.Fell_wanderer01/02/2018
