A Walk


9 Miles Grade 1

Leader: Phil Howarth

What better way to start the new year than by doing one of the Lakes iconic hills, Helm Crag. From the road side parking (free) on the A591 at Grasmere we do a very short bit of roadside walking (North), but quickly cut across fields to Helmside. This gives us access to the hillside and onto Steel Fell. A longish but progressive climb rather than steep takes us to the summit(553m). There is still some uphill to do on this walk but most of the hard stuff is now behind us.

We then head in a Westerly direction and over to Calf Crag, usually the lunch stop.There is then a great route taking us to Gibson Knott and finally onto Helm Crag. A hill top full of features and if the jets happen to fly by the best place to view them from. Its then down to Grasmere and tea and buns if somewhere is open. For those not familiar with this walk and want to know how painful it is, it lays somewhere between an A and B walk. The walking is all on good paths, could be the odd boggy bit at this time of year, no scrambling (unless you want to go up the Howitzer) with great views all around. Four Wainwrights to bag. All in all a great way to start your hiking year.

Be there or be square.
