The Fairfield Horseshoe

Buy Me a Coffee at

The classic eight fell walk, with the mighty Fairfield in the middle. Although this tale would be better had I not been to Low Pike two years earlier...

Walked on 25 June 2013

Route: Ambleside → Nab Scar → Heron Pike → Great Rigg → Fairfield → Hart Crag → Dove Crag → High Pike → Low Pike → Ambleside.
