Highest Inns Challenge Walk

80 km / 50 miles

Cumbria, N Yorks
The Highest Inns Challenge Walk starts from the Kirkstone Pass Inn, famously the highest inn in the Lakes and the fourth highest in Britain. The route follows the watershed for a while, taking in High Street and continuing through the Howgills, over The Calf and finally over Nine Standards Rigg.

It takes in views of three famous waterfalls: Black Spout, Cautley Spout and Hell Gill, and on the way you can visit two other famous Inns: the Cross Keys Temperance Inn at the base of Cautley Spout and the Moorcock Inn near Garsdale Head. After 50 miles it finishes at the highest inn in Great Britain, the Tan Hill Inn.
