One of the best hikes in Lake District, Ambleside trails are packed with beautiful landscapes from start to end. One of the best hikes in England maybe.

My wife and I walked up this fell a couple of days ago. We walked from Ambleside, past the Caves overlooking Rydal Water before ascending up the Terrace above Grasmere Water up to the top of Loughrigg Fell. We had fantastic views at the top...More

Get directions from someone and go!! The view is wonderful and the sheep are super cute! It's not a difficult hike.

Starting at the centre of Ambleside the walk has as steep start but after the steep start is really pleasant passing Grasmere lake then down onto Ryedale lake before returning to Ambleside

Ideal walk for children and beginners ticks all you boxes but not too high and track is easy to follow

Wonderful views of Rydal and Grasmere, absolutely beautiful. Paths as you head up slightly unclear but dont be put off, the views from the top are really special.

All the car parks! Best route is through the park and up the fell, we did this route, see link. Look at Walklakes website for a relatively easy route up to summit, 3hours, 6 miles?

I think it would be difficult to get lost around Rydal Water and Grasmere. Park at White Moss Car Park or one of the other public car parks on the A591 and then follow the footpaths around the lake. I'm sure the kids would... More
