A superb walk around Loughrigg Fell with magnificent views across the southern half of the Lake District including Lake Grassmere, Rydal Water and the Langdale Pikes.

Did this walk starting at white moss car park and made our way up to Rydal cave then up to Loughrigg fell. Missus is a beginner at hiking so was a little challenging for her but the views at the top were worth it. stunning!

Worth the climb to the top for great views on a clear day (and less crowds). On the north edge of the trail, take the detour to the Rydal caves as well. Took 3.5 hours from the bus stop at Ambleside Pier.

Beautiful hike, which is actually only 6 miles. you can also cut through some pastures, walking amongst the sheep.

Just enough elevation to make you feel you’re working but not enough to be a slog. Great variety, lovely views.

Moderately challenging trail with fantastic views. First half is manageable for children. Was fine for my 8 year old daughter. Suggested itinerary is head to Rydal from Ambleside. Take the higher trail up to see the very interesting Rydal Caves. Then turn back at the half way point, and head down towards the main trail along the river for a beautiful and more relaxing walk back towards Ambleside. Great views and well worth the hike. Second half of trail may involve steeper ascent and less suitable for younger ones .

Great day hike with many side trails that take you up to high vantage points.

Had a great, very warm walk around Loughrigg Fell. I went up to the top while leaving my wife waiting at the bottom. Took about 25 mins to get up from the bench. Overall a lovely, long walk.

This was my first ever hike with any amount of climbing, so I can attest that this trail is perfect for a newbie. Absolutely lovely walk, not difficult. The Rydal cave is great bonus.

Always a lovely hike up and around Loughrigg- take in the summit and the viewpoints at Todd Crag and Grasmere Terrace
