Like Fairfield, the Coledale horseshoe should be on every fell-walkers tick list. On the principle of getting the hardest part over with first, the horseshoe is usually done anticlockwise, Grisedale Pike being the first. The conditions and views make it one of the most rewarding on the tops.

Excellent Trail and definitely worth it! And this is rated as moderate. I’m a fairly seasoned Fell Walker and it’s probably more towards hard than moderate. Unless I’m just getting old! well worth the effort!

didnt get to finish. note to self, check weather conditions at the top. Approaching the summit there were 50mph gust and very poor visability. Decided to bail out and return another time to complete this. Can tell it's going to be stunning when I finish...

Lots of ups and down but views are worth it! Gets better the further round you get.
