Loughrigg Fell can only be described as beautiful. As a low lying fell this Lakeland beauty finds itself nestled in the midsts of the imposing Langdale Pikes, Fairfield Horseshoe, High Raise and Silver How.
With its central isolated position Loughrigg offers the ultimate 360º views of surrounding fells with the scenery stretching as far as Lake Windermere.
Suitable for all walking abilities the route appeals to all the senses incorporating woodland paths, shoreline tracks and an incredible terrace overlooking the stunning Grasmere lake and village. Photo opportunities are plentiful with panoramic views in every direction.
One thing is for sure... once at the summit you will find it difficult to leave!
Heading out of Grasmere Village via Red Bank Road, the walk to Loughrigg Fell begins steadily. Passing the Grasmere boating hut we climb towards the woods on the banks of the picturesque lake. After a stroll through the woods we reach the Loughrigg Terrace offering spectacular views back down towards Grasmere village. From here we have two options;
Continue along the terrace and down to the shores of the lake or for the ultimate views progress further to the summit of Loughrigg Fell (highly recommended!) Once at the summit the trig point offers stunning 360° views of the Lakeland Fells including Helm Cragg, Fairfield and even Lake Windermere...
After spending plenty of time at the summit the route then takes us down to the shores of the lake for a steady stroll back to Grasmere and its abundance of craft shops, tea shops and traditional local pubs.
