Perfect trail for hiking or biking

This is a very scenic hike, right from the rock scrambles to the plateau to the view of the valley from Kinder Downfall. There is some amount of s rambling to the top, and I lost the trail on the top to kinder downfall and was walking along a bog (wet and muddy), but finding the trail again gave a me a great sense of accomplishment. The hike ends along the Pennine Way where you can meet the bay packers walking to/from Scotland!

Steep up and down, but great view of the lake all throughout.

Absolutely worth the climb. The views are great at every point, but when you get to the top and get the 360 degree perspective, it’s truly beautiful. Wonderful to have a wilderness experience so close to the city streets of Edinburgh.

Just wonderful! So calm, so peaceful!

Love this trail

I’ve climbed Tryfan’s North Ridge several times and it’s one of my favourite routes anywhere. It’s a scramble up a mountain rather than a walk and compared to other AllTrails walks I’ve done graded as ‘moderate’ it’s well at the top of that description. The rapid ascent will give you a workout and the views are fantastic on a clear day. Route finding- although you’re heading for the summit so, in principle, just keep going up, there are many ways to the top and you need to watch out for parts that are quite exposed or gullies that end in unclimbable rock walls. I usually go for maximum scrambling and there are plenty of challenges that for me are on the verge of needing a rope. In inclement weather the rock can be much more slippery.

Couldn’t ask for a more beautiful day! This easy walk/hike offers surprises around the very turn. Filled with magic, mystery, and breathtaking views it’s a place to visit!

Beautiful falls and pools that are set in a picturesque valley, surrounded by majestic mountains of luminous green. The path follows the stream, and in a couple of spaces there are a few rocks to hop, all well worth the journey.

Beautiful family loop, which has everything you need from a moderately gentle mountain bike trail. My 7 year old son struggled a bit on climbs but loved the downhill rollercoaster sections. Highly recommended!

my first hike for nearly over 10years, had an amazing day the view wernt the best because of low clouds but what a climb, very rocky at the start but the path gets easier as you go, just keep thinking your nearly there and you'll do it, that's my motto and I conquered it of to snowdan next week then the big Ben Nevis after then hitting irish peaks, I can say the pike got me attached.

Simple route which at the summit provides excellent views. Very stony so decent hiking boots are a must!

I really enjoyed this and did it within 3 hours. Head for Australia lake (as it's shaped) and follow the path up. It gets quite loose near the top. Reach the style on the wall but don't go over it. Instead turn left and follow the wall, always stay this side of the wall. Where the path hits the final ascent it is not terribly clear but just look for where the rocks are discoloured slightly from other users and follow them. You will need to scramble/climb this last section but I wouldn't call it dangerous. Say hello to Adam and Eve at the top!

Things to bare in mind. Has it rained in the last few days? This could mean mud and wet slippery rocks.
If there's been little rain in recent weeks the waterfalls can almost run dry.

Nice view :)

Went on this hike yesterday and took a 9 and 10yr old. We left out the summits and headed straight to the saddle for spectacular views. The children’s parents did this same hike years ago as children too and everyone loved it. It’s hard going at parts but so enjoyable. Fabulous day out!

My husband and I were in Scotland for our 20th anniversary and wanted a fairly easy hike. This fit the bill. It was beautiful even with the crowd. We were there in October so it was busy but not overwhelmingly so. I can imagine it would be packed in other months.

Beast of a hike but awesome!

Great climb, wall falls! View!

First time good views from top

Great views. Fairly challenging in places.

A nice easy route for a quick weekend walk with some lovely scenery. Would recommend the longer route around Rutland water if biking. The pub in Hambleton is definitely worth stopping at afterwards.

Started from the Irish Sea at St Bees on July 11, 2018. A beautiful walk along the coastline past the lighthouse. We could see the Isle of Man off the coast. We headed inland through pastures then along a rail line to a path into Cleator. The steep climb started after Cleator leading up a steep dirt road near forest clear cutting fields. Afterwards there was a final steep trail up to the top of the hill that could be seen from Cleator. There were two cairns at this spot. From there we headed across the rolling hilltop to a steep rough downhill into the valley that led northward to Ennerdale.
