This is the prominent hill to the east of Kendal that stands above the northern edge of the town. The views from the top are superb with the Lakeland Fells on one side and the Howgills on the other. The route cannot properly be described as circular as part of the route around Mealbank village is used for the outer and return journey but walkers will end up back where they started having followed the banks of the River Mint up one side of the river and back down the other side.
