Route suggestion: Bridge House Ambleside - Stock Ghyll - Wansfell Pike
1.4 mile / approx 1300 ft ascent
This is quite a popular route for people who I assume are staying in or around Ambleside. If you arrive at the top in the middle of the day you often find more than a few family groups admiring the view from up here.
Although I haven't shown it here, a de-tour to see Stockghyll Force waterfalls is well worth the effort. The falls are signposted from the road you follow out of Ambleside.
The final pull onto the top is rather steep, and when wet, can be very slippery.
