Terrain Overview





A walk to demonstrate to somebody who has never fell walked why fell walking in the Lakes is so good



The walk starts at White Moss Walks car park just off the A591 heading out of Ambleside. We set off through the wooded area

Through the hand gate and turn right to get on the start of Loughrigg Terrace

Continue to the very end of the Terrace to pick up the start of the main path to the summit



The path whilst steep in parts is very easy to follow



The gradient eases as you approach the shoulder of the Grasmere cairn



On the upper reaches there is a bit of mild scrambling
