Settle To Carlisle - Hill Walk
171 km / 106 miles
Cumbria, N Yorks
With over 22,000 feet of ascent in 106 miles, this journey sets out from Settle, taking in some of the classic summits of the North Yorkshire Dales, Howgills and Eastern and Northern Lakeland Fells. The walk ends at Carlisle giving the opportunity to return to Settle on Englandís most scenic railway.
The route conveniently divides into 8 sections of 15 miles or less. It takes in the summits of Ingleborough, Whernside and Great Coum, before moving on to the Howgills, including The Calf, with routes over lesser known ridges into the eastern Lakeland fells, taking in Haweswater Head, High Street, Sheffield Pike and the Dodds, as well as the northern Lakeland fells of Blencathra, Bowscale Fell and High Pike.
This is a new route that covers not only sections of classic routes but also visits lesser known, and at times remote, areas of northern England. Ideal for confident and experienced walkers.
