An inspirational guidebook to 50 classic walks on the high fells of the Lake District.
The circular walks are all graded, making this guidebook equally suitable for less experienced walkers looking for new summits and undiscovered areas of the Lake District.
Walk grades - three grades categorise the routes:
- Energetic: devoid of serious hazard, requiring straightforward map-reading skills on largely secure paths, in normal circumstances involving up to 6 hours walking.
- Strenuous: far more commiting in terms of time and energy. Set aside a full 8-hour day and be prepared to be remote from valley bases.
- Arduous: an altogether rougher, tougher encounter with the possibility of mild scrambling. Scrambling requires composure and a good head for heights, and several optional scrambling sections occur on routes in this guide.
