Great place, crazy rock formations but care needed in poor visibility, very easy to lose the trail.

Almost all single-track up and down. Brilliant trail, cafe nearby.

Easy 1.5 miles from the trailhead to the falls and back. Beautiful forest and lovely water.

Absolutely brilliant walk! I would recommend this over the Miners Path any day! Hard slog at times but on a clear day the views are amazing from any point of the walk! Beware of the amount of biting midges at the top though!!!

Great trail for the novice. Woods to beach, meadows, tilled fields, wildflowers, wildlife, something for everyone.
Good cutoffs to other footpaths. Some of the trek is on hard surfaces roads, some on rock country lanes, some through marsh and mud.

Really enjoying this route. It’s becoming more popular too. Mainly following National cycling route 7 means there is a little too much tarmac but the stretches which go high above the lochs afford the best views. So go high at every opportunity. The stretch between Ardtalnaig and Aberfeldy is one of the most scenic but all of the stages have there own high point. You won’t be disappointed

Top place

Tricky first ascent, mostly steep stairs. It gets gradual after that then a scramble to the top at the end. Would recommend this over coming up the miners track any day!

Ben Vorlich a relatively straightforward path. Stuc a chroin requires some climbing and the descent is steep no matter joe you do it.

Great if you like trudging over estate roads & heather. The approach from the ski road cuts quite a bit, but can get tedious. Made up for by its prettiness and location... genuinely worth it.

A pretty moderate (at best) walk. Short, sweet and less hard work than it looks.

A lovely ski tour or a slightly dull hike. To make the walk a 5* day add in Fiacaill Ridge on the approach.

I have run from Llanfairfechain to Aber Falls and back and it was one of the best trail runs I’ve done. 10 miles in total, followed by fish and chips in the cafe on the front at Llanfairfechain. Really good day out!!

Beautiful scenery had an amazing time. Didn't do the whole trail as there was a ram at the top my dog took a disliking to but still completed a loop. The rocky cliffs remind me of the rock monsters from the never ending story.

A shorter version of the “Mosedale round” also listed. The descent off before Yewbarrow is a steep alternative that saves time but not your knees!

Probably the most direct, but neither the easiest, most interesting nor most sensible route. If you’re strapped for time and running it works ok.

Other routes from the Borrowdale side generally give more interest as would adding another top like Green Gable or Pillar.

One of the more interesting ways to do England’s highest point with varied terrain - but it feels a long way! If clockwise round this loop then going up a scramble on Great End - eg Cust’s Gully is a lot of fun and really add to the day!

This route is described elsewhere under a different name with more reviews. It’s basically The shortest and least pleasant way up. It’s a prerequisite to actually know what you’re doing with a map and compass. ...as well as having them with you as the weather changes at the drop of a hat. The route finding near the summit can be poor. Boots people - it’s a rough hill and far too many people get carried off by MRT.

A great round, but hot in the summer it’s one with little water so make sure you take enough. Adding in Kirk Fell isn’t the most fun route up, but gives more stunning views for your investment (and a fun scramble down) and in balance is worth it if you fancy a longer day.

Probably the most tedious route up to England’s highest point. It is the quickest and the one requiring the least technical skill, but yet a serious undertaking (and often underestimated).

Good navigation skills are a prerequisite as the top is a nightmare if the cloud comes in (and it does rapidly, even in the summer). Trainers and walking shoes aren’t a good enough replacement for boots here - despite good paths, it is a rough, serious mountain.

This is neither a ‘hard’ route nor a quiet route.

In the summer months this route is heavily trafficked, mostly due to its easy route finding, very solid trail and great views. Be warned though the top catches the weather badly and it can be VERY COLD and WINDY on the top when it’s lovely in the valley. In cloud navigation at the top deteriorates rapidly - if you’re not great with a map or compass near this in mind.

A great, albeit short trip out. Worth waiting for a good day and getting up early - the crowds can be awful, but the views amazing. The rock on Sharp Edge has been severely eroded over time and is slippery in the extreme in anything other than dry conditions. The paths off to the side of the arête are to be avoided - not only are they one of the main contributors to erosion in the mountain, but also where accidents happen. Trust the solid rock on the right day and you’ll have a great time.

Fun easy walk along the river. Shipbuilding towns with semiconductor vistas and two charming villages.

one steep climb at the start but a nice couple of hours. lovely in the summer with all the heather and the grouse.
this is one I take the kids on as it's not difficult, has lovely views and a safe walk

I climbed Snowdon with school it a real good challenge but make sure you go at the right time and bring a lot of water because the higher you go the losers the stones are.

Great thanks for the route we couldn’t find Boo Tarn without this. Only saw two other hikers on first half of route then came down quarry path that was packed. Definitely do this one. Path isn’t too clear and I think we were off and on it but made it thanks to this app/ route.

Done this walk many times with dogs and always enjoyed it no matter the weather
