⛰ Talkin Fell ⛰

Talkin fell is such a wonderful walk especially for slightly older children, it really gave my two boys (3 and 5 years old) a sense of achievement! They were both so proud of themselves when they had completed it! I was amazed that my three year old made it on his own – the view from the top of this walk is beautiful.

It is, of course, NOT pram friendly – baby carriers are essential! The route is approximately 4.2-4.4 miles with steep gradients at times.

There are a few stiles to get over and we went anticlockwise round this route. I wouldn’t recommend going this way round as we went a little off track!

To start this walk if you drive from Castle Carrock and follow the Geltsdale Road up the hill to reach the bend in the road at Jockey Shield there is some verge parking available. This is where you can start your walk. The Cumbria County Council website offers a fantastic online leaflet on Talkin Fell if you needed some more information.
