View over Loughrigg Tarn

Grasmere to Skelwith Bridge

WALK A - 10 miles.

The walk starts from Grasmere to head to Town End and then passes Wordworth's Dove Cottage to ascend Grey Crag. We pass Alcock Tarn and below Butter Crag to continue our ascent to Heron Pike. From here we make our long descent down to Rydal along the Lord Crag ridge and then above Nab Scar. From the village of Rydal we go by the side of Rydal Water and on to Loughrigg Terrace and then across Loughrigg Fell. We leave the fell via Black Mire and follow the track and minor road to Skelwith Bridge.

WALK B - 8 miles.

From Grasmere we head north and circle round to Butter Crag and Alcock Tarn then descend back down to the A591 near White Moss car park. Our route crosses the river between Rydal Water and Grasmere lake to ascend Loughrigg Terrace and continue to High Close. We walk along pass the edge of Low Wood and take a minor road to Loughrigg Tarn. From here it's to Tarn Foot and then Little Loughrigg to Skelwith Bridge.

WALK C - 5 miles

to be confirmed, but will probably go from Grasmere along the lake edge and over to Loughrigg Tarn to Skelwith Bridge.
