Loughrigg Tarn and Loughrigg Fell from Elterwater
distance 4.22mi Vertical gain +945ft Vertical drop -938ft Durée 2h45 Easy Easy
Starting point Starting point in Lakes - Cumbria

This is a short walk with a lot of interest. Despite it not tackling any of the major Lakeland summits the views over Loughrigg Tarn are excellent and the panorama from Loughrigg Fell is one of the best.
