After being beaten back by bracken and searing heat on White Combe/Black Combe walk decided on Gummers How on way back to digs. A straight forward walk to top and back (with hoards of others) on a very hot, humid and hazy day.Grasmoor03/08/2019

Walk up from the parking area with my naughty daughters. It was cool and windy but we dodged the showers for the most part,. We climbed up the steep way. Summit Trig falling to bits. Views were superb across to the high hills of the Lakes to the Dales and Morecambe Bay. We saw a Sparrowhawk being mobbed by some Crows. Time taken 44 minutes for 1.3 miles.isabelle24/08/2018
1st of three tumps on a circuit from Fell Foot Wood, taking just under 2 hours. I took tracks through the woodland then crossed a break in the wall to gain the road then on the good footpath upto the top. A notice says that they are using Luing cattle as part of the management plan to increase the botanical diversity of this fell. Quite nice as I was on Luing earlier this year! Unfortunately a bit misty today but Belle Isle easily detectable further up Windermere. Next up..Birch Fell.Dazingdale12/08/2018
From car park, hot, high cloud and good views.iangalbraith22/07/2018
Parked roadside to S. Easy walk up, chose the rocky route near the top. Pillar looking very sorry for itself. On to Birch and Staverley Fells. ***Re-visited 29 Jul 2019 with No 1 son and the grandboys.jonglew09/07/2018
On way back from work in heatwave. Easy enough even in work shoes - great views.SS27/06/2018
Quick jaunt from car parkThe Playful Pig12/06/2018
Usual route. Numerous trainer flipflop types about. I'd suggest boots as its rougher higher up. Splendid views but a busy spot considering it was gone 7pm. Some urchin has been trying to remove the flush bracket..stig_nest27/05/2018

9.5 mile circuit from Gummer's How car parkGrislywhite06/01/2018
No. 7 of seven M6 Marilyns on a Bank Holiday. Getting late, so the lay-by near the footpath was clear, and no-one on the hill. Easy path, stone steps for much of the way, then little rocky bits at the top. Views are quite good but Windermere is very industrial looking, marinas, boats, etc.Gill26/08/2017
WOs 77 and 78; Bs 64 and 65. Followed W's route from car park - very busy. Made the mistake of pushing on to the Birkett, Birch Fell - now forested and across foul bog. Only found summit with GPS after fighting my way up the hill through thick forest. Then drove round to do Staveley Fell from Sow How lane. Easy forest track in and out but W's return path untraceable and whole fell covered in deep brushwood from felling and thick heather. Another very unpleasant hill.BURGESS07/08/2017
Bagged this nice little hill on way to watch holker old boys pre-season match. Hill was better than match. But I bagged the ground. From Gummers how car park 60 mins including birch fellLongwojo01/07/2017

KJ A dozing Luing bull is one of the more unusual Lakeland obstacles to meet as we made a quick ascent from the car park to stretch our leg muscles as a warm down from hill running. Large chunk missing at foot of trig. Great view of Windermere.crazy06/05/2017
Repeat bagging on way to Birch Fell. Excellent path from layby on road to south. Only 4 others at top, which surprised us. Superb views, just a bit too hazy for good photos.Hillsidenick02/05/2017
