Anyone up for the Coledale Hike? A tough but rewarding day out
The challenge route is a total of 17.6 miles with 1444m of ascent over rugged, steep and very challenging terrain. Please only enter this event if you are an experienced hiker.
The route leaves our Festival Village, taking you up Catbells, where you then descend and head along Rigg Beck. You then ascend up and onto the southern ridge of the Coledale Horseshoe, taking in Sail and Crag Hill before descending into the valley. But it’s time to get those climbing legs back on as you ascend up to Outerside, which is followed by Slight Side and Barrow. Once you’ve ticked your 6th summit you then head back to Keswick using a variety of roads, paths and tracks.
Please note, there are no hydration or feed stations on this hike, you must pack enough to be self sufficient. Juniors aged 14+ must be accompanied by an adult (no more than 2 juniors to 1 adult).
