Nan Bield Pass, Lake District from Staveley has technical rocky descents, tough, hike a bike
Staveley and the Nan Bield Pass mountain bike route is in the Eastern Lake District in North West England. It is graded as technically difficult / hard and is 21.5 miles long. The section from Kentmere to Haweswater and back includes a lot of technical riding on loose boulders and bedrock. There are a couple of very steep climbs and the one from Haweswater to the top of the Nan Bield Pass involves a difficult hike-a-bike. If that is your kind of thing then carry on. It begins from the car park behind Wheelbase cycles in Staveley (GR471983).
