Rangers to organise classic horseshoe walk
Bookmark and Share
One of the most popular Lake District classic walks is to be organised by national park rangers later this month.

May 23rd will see the Fairfield Horseshoe trek taking place, a challenging but famous walk - for which the authority notes good walking boots will be needed.

Outdoor jackets could be very useful as well, since the wind may be strong and chilling for much of the walk, most of which takes place above 2,000 ft, while some may wish to bring walking poles.

The highest point is Fairfield itself at 2,864 ft, while Hart Crag is another popular fell in the walk.

It all starts at 09:30 BST at Rydal Church, with the 9.9 mile hike taking seven hours.

Fairfield can also be climbed from the Patterdale side of the mountain range, via valleys such as Dovedale and involving other high fells like the 2,759 ft summit of St Sunday Crag.
