Bowden Bridge Car Park - Mount Famine - South Head - Peep-O-Day - Birch Vale - Lantern Pike - Little Hayfield - Middle Moor - White Brow - Bowden Bridge Car Park

A great days walk with many sunny spells. This walk has a variety of scenery and also is easy to follow with many good paths. It is well worth the excursion to Mount Famine and South Head instead of cutting straight across to Peep o Day. There are many stunning views and several hill climbs.
