Join us on a day walk along the Fairfield Horseshoe just outside of Ambleside in the heart of the Lake District. The Fairfield Horseshoe is one of the classic horseshoes of the Lake District and takes in 8 Wainwrights, including Great Rigg, Fairfield, Hart Crag and Dove Crag.
Meet at our cafe in Ambleside, Cafe Altitude (above the climbing wall) at 9am for a coffee and briefing before heading off through Rydal park and start climbing upwards to Nab Scar. Once we reach the top of Nab Scar the path gets gentler as we carry on up and over Lords Crag, Heron Pike, Great Rigg and eventually reach Fairfield. The horseshoe offers spectacular views all the way up and once you reach Fairfield you can see north to Helvellyn and even further towards Skiddaw and Blencathra.
From here we’ll carry on to Hart Crag, Dove Crag and further on over High Pike and Low Pike with fantastic views over Windemere and the coast, before dropping down and back into Ambleside.
