The Dales Way goes off to the right at a signpost and cairn at Grid Reference SD 813 817 whilst the Pennine Way continues to use the stone track. Through another field gate the track meets the road coming up out of the valley from Cam Houses. The track becomes tarmac and is given a name, Cam High Road and gains a history as it is a Roman Road.
