Review Highlights
My favourite walk.

It is an relatively easy and simple walk. If the weather is good, you have some lovely views around.

One of the first mountains you should’ve go up in the Lake District. It’s pretty goodbye to walk up and fantastic views over Derwentwater and Keswick. You can get to the top in around an hour so it’s a place pleasant hike👍

Very very good walk. Great views and easy to get to. Still a challenging walk though and well worth it. Really enjoyed it.

We had a great father and daughter walk upto the summit which wasn’t as easy as expected but well worth the effort.

Not sure about the 3.5 year old to be honest. You will probably need to carry him or her for a lot of it. If you're ok with that, then go for it. I did a lot with my kids in Colorado many years ago. They were better on... More
