Pretty easy going, potentially snowly but low level. Approximately 8 miles which is around 5 hours.

Great walk taking in some of the famous sights of the Lake District with Loughrigg & Loughrigg Tarn, Grasmere and then onto Rydal Water.

I'll be staying in the YHA the nights of the 30/31/1st so feel free to join or go luxury in a hotel in the Village, we'll meet in the bar area at 7pm each evening with more info nearer the time.  I would also imagine we'll have other routes going both days from this hostel.  

In the heart of the Lake District lies the typically Lakeland fell of Loughrigg, which is fascinating to climb, but just as much fun to walk around. After the initial short sharp climb out of Ambleside to the beautifully located Lily Tarn the walk is easy and full of interest. Loughrigg Tarn, the terrace on Loughrigg Fell with its superb views and the quiet lakeside walk beside Rydal Water are all highlights.

There is never a dull moment on the entire circuit which includes so much of what makes the Lake District the best place to walk in England. A major part of the reason for the ongoing interest is the changing views , starting with the the southern fells around Coniston and Windermere but changing to the north with glimpses of Blencathra – a real Lakeland perspective.
