The Skyline Trail on Pine Hill

Route: Herd path, Quarry Road, Skyline Trail, Cross Fells Trail, Red Cross Path, Middle Road

Quick jog in the southern Middlesex Fells.

Trails were generally dry with occasional minor frost-melt mud and a few tiny patches of ice. Nice views from Wright Tower on Pine Hill and on Wenepoykin with the leaves down. Highly recommend having a map handy (had one saved on my phone), as there are all sorts of trails and junctions.
