Ullswater Horseshoe (2 days)

This is a great way to take in the major peaks around the Ullswater Valley! Our journey starts at High Row where we set off along the Old Coach Road. We soon turn off the track and start the walk up on to Great Dodd. From here we can look back on to Blencathra and its majestic ridges falling down to the valley.  The long, broad undulating ridge of Dodds stretches before us as it winds its way towards the Lake District’s only ski area on Raise. We now climb the ridge up to Helvellyn Lower Man before summitting on this area’s highest and best known peak, Helvellyn. This is a great viewpoint with the majority of Lakeland peaks visible making this a great place to stop for a while. Ahead lie Nethermost and Dollywaggon Pikes and the path rolls across their broad slopes before dropping down to Grisedale Tarn - a dark tarn nestled below Fairfield and Seat Sandal. The path turns east and makes its way down Grisedale with views up into the coves we have walked above today and also up to the fell of St Sunday. We end our day in the village of Glenridding on the shores of Ullswater.

Our second day begins with the climb up to Angle Tarn via Boredale Hause. As we walk past the tarn, St Sunday, High Street and the Fairfield range dominate the view. We gradually climb to Kidsty Pike with views down to Haweswater and across to Riggindale and the home of the Lake District’s only Golden Eagle. Our route now follows the Roman Road of High Street north over High Raise to Loadpot Hill along a broad ridge. Views down into Martindale and Ullswater and across to the Pennines make this a great place to be. The journey ends with the descent down towards Pooley Bridge.  We end our walk at Roehead just a few minutes drive from Pooley Bridge. Let Eden Outdoor Adventures take you on this fantastic walk and help make it a memorable journey.

Grade:

A route with a large amount of ascent and descent requiring a good level of fitness and previous summer hill walking experience.

Best of Cross Lakeland (2 days)

 

Let Eden Outdoor Adventures show you the best parts of the Lake District as you cross from West to East. Our journey starts at Seathwaite in Borrowdale. We venture up to Styhead Tarn following Styhead Gill, along a well made path. The tarn sits below the slopes of Great Gable, one of Lakeland’s famous peaks. From here we head up under the cliffs of Great End, a classic winter climber’s paradise. The track takes us to Angle Tarn, nestled underneath Esk Pike and Bowfell. Ahead lies the Langdale Pikes where we head to Pavey Ark with great views down into the Langdale Valley. From the summit of Pavey Ark we look down on Stickle Tarn and the cliffs that make this mountain popular with climbers. From here we head down to Easedale Tarn via Sergeant Man to end our day in the popular village of Grasmere.

Our second day starts with a walk up to Grisedale Tarn - a dark tarn sitting below the peaks of Seat Sandal, Fairfield and Dollywaggon Pike. From here the major uphill of the day takes us to the summit of Dollywaggon Pike. This popular path has been repaired by the Fix the Fells team, but it is still a steep climb over a short distance. From the top our main objective for the day is now visible - the summit of England’s third highest mountain – the lofty Helvellyn standing at 950m. Broad slopes take us over Nethermost Pike and on to the bare summit of Helvellyn. The walk offers great views down into the coves on the northern side of these fells as well as sweeping views down to Thirlmere and back to the route of our first day’s walk. From the summit we have a number of options open to us - descend via one of Helvellyn’s  popular ridges - or a longer, but less technical descent via Whiteside. Striding Edge offers a long scrambling route off the top of Helvellyn whilst Swirral Edge offers a shorter option. Our journey ends in Glenridding on the picturesque shores of Ullswater.
