    Great but busy!
    I had to laugh at another recent review “everyone and their mum goes up this” as I have to agree. It’s a beautiful walk but really busy, especially the Rydal Cave area. If you’re after a peaceful walk with dogs it’s probably not the one.

    Best views!
    Best views not to miss! We walked up with our 8&11 year olds, who really enjoyed it too. Had to add on parking afterwards - which ought to have been more straightforward than it was - and in our opinion a little expensive, but overall the views and experience was well worth it!

    Are we there yet ?
    Awesome views of grassmere. Harder climb than expected, steps are quite steep and slippery. When you think you are near the top you aren’t, you have only just started 🤣. All shapes and ages were visiting, most made it to the top, but quite a few quit. It’s not hard enough for experienced walkers but a good one if you have limited time.

Fantastic walking route from Ambleside up Loughrigg Fell with stunning views. We continued down towards Lake Grasmere and looped around towards Rydal Cave which was fun to venture into and listen to the echo! We then returned to Ambleside walking along Under Loughrigg following the River Rothay. Highly recommend this loop which took around 3 hours altogether.

We walked the circular route from Ambleside to the Loughrigg trig point and then down the steep steps /path and back towards Rydel caves. Beautiful panoramic scenery with varied terrain taking you across open fell, mountainsides, riverwalks and forest. We were glad to have done the clockwise route as the climb up from the Grasmere lake area would have been quite tough (especially if busy) - thankfully not many hikers around despite the glorious sunshine. Need proper footwear especially as the rock steps were a little icy in parts.

Lovely circular walk from Ambleside, the ascent to Loughrigg Fell is strenuous but well worth it. We went on a sunny day in November and the views were simply stunning. The descent to Loughrigg Terrace was busy and it is clear from the bags of rocks airlifted to the summit that they intend doing some repairs to the main path from Loughrigg terrace in the winter. If you want to avoid the majority of people ascend by a different route, there are plenty to choose from. From the summit must be one of the best views in the Lakes.

The views are simply stunning here, and you can see for miles and miles. The caves are beautiful and well worth the climb and rock leaping to venture inside! If you like taking photos you’ll be hard pressed to find a better place than here.

Even though we visited on a slightly damp, misty day, it was well worth it, and we did all the trails, parking at the White Moss car park. I’d like to go back in the summer and see the change in the landscape - the autumn colours were wonderful.

A wonderful fell with some great features. Started at Rydal Water, itself a great spot, walked up to Rydal Caves. Very interesting, particularly the main cave. Carried on up the hill to the summit, several bumps along the ridge, all good viewpoints to Loughrigg Tarn; down Windermere and over Rydal Water. Made a circuit of it by dropping down the opposite side and following Loughrigg Terrace back, which offers great views over Grasmere from it's elevated position.

Lucky it was a clear, sunny day and we could see for miles. It’s not too much of an effort but well worth it. If you start and end in Ambleside you can stop for cake at Rydal Mount when you get down from the top.

It's only 335m high which means the climb is not too taxing, although it is steep. Paths are pretty good. From the summit you have an outstanding 360 degree view on a clear day. It's one of the best viewpoints in the whole Lake District and would definitely recommend.

This was a great walk/climb, not too difficult but certainly still had its challenges. I walked from Ambleside which had beautiful views over fields and peaks, and it took me just over an hour to reach the top. It took me up to loughrigg then I went back down towards Rydal and Grasmere. Great walk and would strongly recommend anyone staying near Ambleside to do this walk! It's great.

Easy to find and great parking options, plus toilets near the car park. The views are incredible and we saw the brightest rainbows that we have ever seen. We walked to the caves first then did the climb. It was slippy in places so we took care. Our children are 8 and 5 and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. It was a much more enjoyable experience than visiting Catbells in every way. For people who are active and fit this will be a great climb.
