Lake District: High Fell Walks (Paperback)
This Guide contains 30 graded walks. From classic horseshoes, such as the Newlands Round and the Fairfield Horseshoe, and traditional ascents of England's most iconic mountains, including its highest peaks Scafell Pike, Scafell, Helvellyn and Skiddaw, to well-trodden routes onto some of the quieter summits including Gray Crag and Beda Fell, the 30 routes in this guide comprise all the best high-level fell walks to be had in England's beautiful and much-loved Lake District National Park.
Also featuring quieter routes onto popular fells including Blencathra and Red Screes, the walks range from 7–23km and are graded for difficulty. Covering both rocky terrain and grassy hills, with occasional boggy ground, most of them are relatively easy-to-follow in clear conditions, but may require good navigational skills in mist.
