Lovely walk around Buttermere. Waterfall. Easy trail. Did this walk the day before walking to Haystacks.

Fantastic hike to see a more remote part of the Lake District mountains and scale the peak of England. Be prepared for very rocky terrain and plan more time in your hike. It was cloudy and difficult to scale that last part to the peak. On the way back you will get to a turnoff that goes up (see arrow on rock). It is a bit challenging for a moment, but provides better views on the way back. This hike was way more tiring that a similar distance hike we did to The Old Man Coniston but well worth it for the views, the feeling of having the mountain to yourself, various creeks, and solitude.

Very nice hike, at times a little rough with ankle biting rocks, but very manageable. I went up towards Great Gable and decided that I had enough time to climb that one as well. It was a bit extra at 1500 feet to 2800 feet, and back down again, but I did have all day. Then went around the back side of Scafell Pike (although the corridor route looked like a good way to go). I lucked out and had a day with great views, and greatly enjoyed the high point of England. Coming back down along the route in this map was quite beautiful, with creek flowing, and all the sheep nearby made my day something unique for this American!

Good fun. Not toooo hard, but easy to get lost when the clouds come over so stick to the path. I recommended doing a loop round up to the path south of Great Gable, and down the valley back to Wasdale and end at the pub for a quick refreshment

Great place with lots of good views!

there are 3 trails here all together one easy and 2 harder it's a good beginner trail but the trails could be a bit more flowy and more more jumps apart from that it's a great bike ride
