Fairfield, the (relatively!) easy way - i.e., via Alcock Tarn (from the White Moss area), Stone Arthur, Great Rigg, thence to the top, and thereafter back down from between Great Rigg and Heron Pike to Alcock Tarn again. Lovely views all the way till the summit, when not so bright. But definitely a less arduous route than the whole of the Fairfield 'Horseshoe', plus first visit to Stone Arthur. (The Alcock Tarn section was included i) because of its beauties, and ii) because parking near the White Moss path up it is more convenient than near to the Michael’s Fold alternative.)(Highest point - Fairfield: 2863 ft./873 m. Distance: 8.5 miles/ 13.6 km. Ascent: 3365 ft./ 865 m. Time: 8 hours.)FURTHER INFORMATIONFor further details of this walk, see the following:Richards, M.
