An inspirational larger format guidebook to fifty memorable walks on the high fells of the English Lake District. From the favourite summits of Scafell, Bowfell, Great Gable, the Crinkle Crags, to lesser-known fells, this guide offers only the best walks to explore all that is pure Lakeland.
Some of the 50 walks described in Great Mountain Days in the Lake District are well known classic challenges - such as Scafell Pike and Esk Pike, or the Gable Girdle - while others approach a favourite mountain from a new angle or combine several in a testing way.
These circular hikes on the high Lakeland fells have been chosen to provide the moderately adventurous hiker with a range of essential routes for exploring the region. The walks are all graded, making the guide equally suitable for less experienced walkers looking for new summits and undiscovered areas. Only the mildest of scrambling will be encountered, as these are four-season walks. All routes are illustrated with Harvey maps and the author's pictorial route diagrams.ISBN: 9781852845162
