Lonscale Fell via Burnt Horse Ridge

Lonscale Fell is often tagged on with a walk to nearby Skiddaw. This walk shows you another side, the craggy east side. Taking you on a stroll across its rounded southern face it then sneaks along the side of the Glenderaterra river valley before turning to approach the fell from the north. Having wandered over the summit and east peak, it drops down to the main Skiddaw path a little way above the old halfway house platform.

New fencing (March 2012) encloses a Jubilee Wood where the estate is hoping to re-establish juniper and oak on the crags below Burnt Horse Ridge. Stiles complete with dog gates allow access along the edge of the ridge with its splendid views of the corrie below.
