The Best Walks in the Lake District

Graham Hadaway - Monday, June 01, 2015

 

Going to the Lake District and not heading out on the fells is almost a cardinal sin. The Lake District is known for its amazing peaks and walks the provide those willing to tackle them, with some amazing views in return.

 

Here, we’ve come up with some of our favourite routes, for you to try out during your visit:

 

Blencathra 

With Blencathra you get plenty more than you bargained for because it’s several mountains in one. The fan of ridges that Blencathra has on offer mean that you can create a walk to suit you. Whether you’re a novice or a pro, you can tailor your walk to the experience you desire.

 

Grasmere 

If rugged crags are your thing, then Grasmere will provide the perfect walking location, because they really are endless. Each time you think you’ve reached the end of a huge stretch, you’ll see another peeping through the corner of your eye. What makes this place even better is the impressive views you get from the top of a very steep descent into Easedale.

 

Red Screes 

If you want to be able to see the tops of the hills and mountains you could have climbed, then Red Screes is an enviable vantage point. The views you’ll get from here are not to be sniffed at – you certainly won’t be disappointed.

 

Bleaberry Fell 

On a fine day, particularly in the summer, Bleaberry Fell is the place to be. This is a great walk if all you’re looking for is a steady plod to the top, with a panoramic thrill after your hard work. At the top of this steady climb, surrounding mountains and lakes will be there to greet you, and you’ll be faced with a clear track and the sight of your next challenge, High Seat. This is a great path to take, with heather and grass covering the track on your journey to the magnificent viewpoint on offer at the High Seat summit.
