A guided mountain walk, suitable for individuals, couples or small groups of up to five people with your own personal guide for the day. You'll be walking over the range of hills known as The Howgills and will visit the famous Cautley Spout Waterfall.
ItineraryAfter meeting in the car park and having a chat about the day to come, we initially follow the River Rawthey upstream to Cautley, then take a path steeply up into the hills to see the dramatic Cautley Spout, highest waterfall in England. Continuing upwards, and following the course of Red Gill Beck and then Force Gill Beck, we eventually reach the grassy summit of the mountain called The Calf which at 676m above sea level is the highest point in this range of hills and on a clear day, is a great viewpoint. The return to Sedbergh is a high level route crossing over the tops of Bram Rigg Top, Calders, and the broad grassy ridge of Rowantree Grains.
The walk is about 11 miles/18km with approx 1,000 metres of ascent. The terrain is steep, and rough in places and in other places can be a bit boggy, so can be hard going underfoot. A head for heights is required for the ascent. Gook hiking boots and suitable outdoor clothing are essential.
This adventure is perfect for individuals and small groups, and can be tailored for:
