Loughrigg Fell from White Moss

This is another of the many ways to climb the diminutive but rather fine Loughrigg Fell. From White Moss you wander through woods to an easy track leading to Rydal Cave. From there a path climbs up above the cave and onto the fell. A short meander through the knolls of Loughrigg's complicated top leads to the trig point at the summit from where there are fantastic views of many well known fells. Dropping down to Loughrigg Terrace it is then an easy stroll back to the car park.

Rydal Cave is a man made quarry which in its heyday of the 19th century produced high quality roofing slates. Whilst access to the cave is not difficult and many people do cross the stepping stones to its interior, be aware that occasionally blocks do fall from the ceiling!

There are two Lake District National Park Authority pay and display car parks at the start point of White Moss. The first on the road from Ambleside is on the left, the second is 150m (165 yards) further on the right, both are well signed.
