Location: The Coledale Horseshoe

[widgetkit id=20767]


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 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.

As our guides and leaders will be responsible for your wellbeing, we require each walker to complete our medical and experience form and return it to Adventure Peaks or your guide at the start of the walk.You may download a copy here.
