Summit of Green Bell, The Howgill Fells


A full day guided hill walk starting and finishing in the village of Ravenstonedale, to explore the beautiful Howgill Fells and Smardale.

You will be in a small group of no more than six people plus your friendly, professional guide.

The ascent of the Howgills brings in the summits of Green Bell (605m) and Randygill Top (615m). If it is a clear day, you will enjoy wonderful panoramic views over the surrounding countryside. The descent from the Howgills is via a broad, grassy ridge that is known as Hooksey. The last few miles of the walk are lower level on country lanes and tracks, plus footpaths over fields including a crossing of Smardale Bridge which is on the Coast to Coast footpath route.

This is a hilly walk of about 11 miles/18km with approx. 665 metres of ascent over grassy terrain, some of which is pathless. It can be quite hard going, and wet and boggy in places.

It is essential that you wear proper hiking boots and outdoor clothing, and that you bring a waterproof jacket and trousers. A full list of what to wear and what to bring with you will be provided upon booking.

Advance booking and payment is required via the web link.
