Borrowdale trek to feature cave and castle
Bookmark and Share
An organised walk run by Lake District National Park Authority rangers is to take place in Borrowdale on September 11th, featuring Castle Crag and a mystery cave.

Beginning at Seatoller's National Trust car park at 11:00 BST, the walk is 4.6 miles long and lasts for four hours.

Walking boots have been listed as essential, along with a packed lunch, while waterproof jackets may be useful as the village is just a mile from Seathwaite, which has the highest rainfall in England.

The ascent of Castle Crag can help those hoping to climb the 214 Wainwrights to tick another peak off their list.

It is the lowest of the fells listed by the late author in his pictorial guides at 290 metres (951 ft).

The highest of the Wainwrights can also be climbed from Seatoller, as the road to Seathwaite leads to the Sty Head Pass to Wasdale, from which the Corridor Route to Scafell Pike branches off.
