First day of 2 day walks starting from Ambleside.  Classic walk in a beautiful part of the Lake District taking in a number of famous spots like Ambleside, Loughrigg, Grasmere and Rydal.  A couple of places to stop around the walk and we'll probably detour into Grasmere for a quick drink.  It is January so be prepared for any type of weather, warmth clothes, decent footware and waterproofs essential.

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.

Should you wish to stay over, the leader (Mrdabb) Dan is booked into the Ambleside YHA on Friday and Saturday nights. If anyone wants to join me, use the ODL or your YHA member discount and book yourself in too. (At time of writing, beds are £15-£25) but with discount will be cheaper.

The YHA have just put a new offer on with 25% off in January-March so if you are staying and haven't booked I'd use this code NY2018-001.
