  • Steep walk. We walked from Coniston. Very rugged. More time spent looking at the ground and less time admiring the scenery. Long walk without the visual rewards. However, It had to be done. Couldn't l...  more »

  • Lovely south lakes jaunt. Do wrap up warm though as the weather can change quick in the lakes and you would'nt want to get caught out on the top in jeans and a T. Really popular peak so don't expect quiet contemplation on top! Other than that a QMD.
  • Great walk. Loads of fun and the paths are nice and easy to follow. One of my favourite walks in the national park.
  • The hike from Coniston was quite busy but there is plenty of room on the paths for people to pass. The view from the top is wonderful as you can see a number of lakes and other mountains in the area. Well worth the effort. Don't forget your OS map!
  • We didn't make it to the top but enjoyed every part of the walk that we did on the way up. Brilliant views all around.
  • Beautiful views, clear tracks and paths. Coppermine Valley stunning!
