Guided Walk




The Coledale Horseshoe is a high level route with a stunning array of summits, passes and views.

It is one of the best horseshoe walks in the northwest Lake District if not the best. Most of the hard work on this Into The Outside Lake District Guided Walk is spent on the first 3km. But once the hike up to Grisedale Pike from Braithwaite is complete the rest is glorious. From the first Wainwright of the day a good path leads along Hobcarton Crag to Hopegill Head and the view of the coastline, on a clear day, is unrivalled. After walking along Coledale Hause we reach the high point of the day, Eel Crag, at the head of the horseshoe. The crossing over Sail to Scar Crags is a real treat before we reach Causey Pike and the exciting descent back to Braithwaite.
