New hazards in Troutbeck, Ambleside

Post by greg bartlett » Fri Sep 05, 2008 6:46 pm

Just come off paddling this one in the current heavy rain in the lakes. Good medium flow.

There are lots of new tree hazards to be careful of, one very large new tree partially blocking river right on the central section (after gorge).

Plenty of tree clearing if anyone fancies. In higher water the new heavy foliaged trees will present significant hazards.
