Latrigg

Details
Grid Ref NY 279 246
Height 1,203 ft

Latrigg is an incredibly easy fell to visit and one I tend to go to at least a couple of times every year. The main reason is obviously because I enjoy it, plus the fact that it can be walked in just about any weather, the walks you can come up with range from less than a mile to as long as you can comfortably do in a day. And for such a small fell the view is just fantastic.

The northern fells as a range are set aside from everything else in the Lake District, and because Latrigg is found on the edge of the northern fells, there is nothing to hinder the view in most directions from the summit of Latrigg. The highlight in the views department has to be that down to Keswick and Derwent Water. If you look at nothing else, from here you can spend time picking out familiar streets and buildings in the town.

Route suggestion: Briar Rigg - Cumbria Way - Mallen Dodd - Latrigg
1.9 mile / approx 900 ft ascent
++++++++++++++++++++
This is a nice little route to the top of Latrigg, quick, easy going and very easy to follow. And as quick as it is, if you're in a desperate rush, this can be made even shorter by turning right onto one of the paths leading off from the Ewe How section of the walk.
