Grizedale Tarn Trail at Grizedale
The Grizedale Tarn trail at Grizedale forest is the one of six non technical waymarked routes that mainly follow forestry roads.
The Grizedale Tarn Traill starts from the Bogle car park, with bogle being an old word for ghost, so maybe not one for those with a nervous disposition a night ride. The trail starts off with a climb, but soon eases off for a steady ride around te eastern side of the forest with plenty of views and scuplptures to keep an eye out for.
The route is waymarked in BLACK -but not to be confused with the “Black” technical trail!
