Scafell PikeLake District Category Outdoor Activities, Nature & Wildlife
Scafell Pike, 978 metres, is not only England's highest mountain but arguably one of the most stunning because of its remote location and breathtaking views.
Most Wasdale adventures start with the beautiful drive to the valley head with sweeping views of the fells and Wastwater – a favourite with photographers and a perfect place to stop for a picnic. The roads are narrow and windy with some tight passing places so take your time and if at all possible share a lift.
Park your car at Lake Head and then your adventure can begin – climbing Scafell Pike. It's not only England’s highest mountain but it's also a wonderful day out that will reward you with extensive views of the surrounding fells and you can see all the way to the west coast – on a very clear day you may see the Isle of Man and Scotland.
