  • We walked on Loughrigg Fell as we were visiting the caves. The view from the top is amazing, although it is bit of scramble in some places if you are not used to walking

  • Stunning hike, the scenery is out of this world. Absolutely breathtaking views of the lakes! Moderate difficulty, some sections are very steep and rough, proper gear such as hiking shoes with ankle support and poles recommended. Come prepared and allow enough time, start early in the day rather than later!
  • Spectacular. Stunning. What a great walk. Started in Ambleside this morning ended up at the summit then decided to continue on over the other side and down to Grasmere. The sky was clear and the views of the fells, Windermere and Grasmere were fantastic. There are some steeper bits, however nothing to crazy if it’s not wett and you take your time. Good idea non the less to bring a rucksack. Wiry a jacket, some snack and water. Highly recommend this walk. After having lunch in Ambleside the bus ride back to Ambleside was welcome. That being set a cab would have been less expensive for four of us without a day pass for the buss. So get a buss pass!! Saves you money. Took a refreshing swim in Grasemere before a nice pub lunch. A little walk about town was warranted before our return trip to Ambleside.
  • We walked up from Grasmere. It was a great walk up, though lots of stony steps! The trig point looks ace. We walked back to Grasmere via Rydal Caves and Rydal Water. It was about 6 mile walk
  • Excellent walk today. Moderate walk up after Rydal cave. Very steep coming down the stepped decent towards Grasmere.
  • A moderately hard climb in Lake District. Would be good for a beginner in my opinion, and able to give a really beautiful view of the scenery. The view was beautiful even though it was drizzling. I would recommend getting the right outfits, shoes and bags for hiking. Give yourself some time to walk as well (we took 3+ hours up from Ambleside and down at White Moss).
