HOWGILL FELLS 2000's '9 SUMMITS' CHALLENGE WALK

With Mark Reid author of ‘The Inn Way’ & Mountain Leader

The nine 2,000-ft summits of the Howgill Fells
20 km (12.5 miles) – 1,350 metres of ascent – 9 hours

The Howgill Fells 2000’s is a new challenge walk that takes in all nine summits over 2,000-ft (610 metres) in the Howgill Fells, a wonderful range of open hills in the western Yorkshire Dales National Park.

  • The Calf – 676m
  • Calders – 674m
  • Bram Rigg Top – 672m
  • Great Dummacks – 663m
  • White Fell – 640m
  • Fell Head – 640m
  • Yarlside – 639m
  • Randygill Top – 624m
  • Bush Howe – 623m

Mark Reid will guide you along this new challenge walk. The route takes in the very best of the remote and beautiful Howgill Fells, a compact area of hill country with rolling fells and plunging valleys; the name ‘howgill’ comes from the Viking words for ‘hill’ and ‘ravine’.

Highlights include: Cautley Spout (England’s biggest waterfall), wild fell ponies, deep remote valleys, rolling grassy hills, open fells with no walls or fences (and not a single stile to cross or gate to open), and fantastic views across the Yorkshire Dales, Lake District and Irish Sea; the Howgill Fells are said to resemble a herd of sleeping elephants!

It is a demanding walk due to the amount of ascent and descent (1,350 metres), much of which is up and down very steep grassy hillsides, and so it must be approached with preparation and training, but it is also a rewarding walk that will be remembered for many years.

Mark Reid knows the Howgill Fells like the back of his hand and will guide you around this route (whilst also sharing his knowledge of the area), so that you can forget about navigating and concentrate on enjoying the walk.
