The Lake District National Park Authority is planning a guided walk along one of the area's most famous routes.
On Friday May 28th, the Fairfield Horseshoe will be explored in a 9.9 mile, seven-hour trek starting out from outside Rydal Church at 09:30.
It is described as "a classic but demanding lakeland walk on good paths with superb views in all directions". Walking equipment
is essential for the trek, the event organisers have stated, while a packed lunch should also be brought, something that may make visiting a Go Outdoors store to get some backpacking food
a good idea.
Fairfield is the highest mountain in the range at 2,864 ft, while other summits on the route include Heron Pike, Great Rigg, Hart Crag and Dove Crag.
Those wanting to take in a lower route in the Rydal and Grasmere area may wish to climb Latrigg, which is only 1,099 ft high but is listed in the Wainwrights.
