  • TrueFreedomSeekers says...
  • Scafell Pike truly is one of the best Wainwrights to walk up. There are so many variations and so much to see from the epic summit too. If you're in the area then don't miss out on the chance of the top Wainwright in the Lake District. We hiked on our birthday (twins) and it was the best birthday present to see the sunrise as we climbed to the top. We blog on the Lake District and the Wainwrights in general. We've hiked to the top of 185 in the six months that we spent in Cumbria. And now we want to share our journeys with others to help them too. If you need any information on Scafell Pike from the routes to the top, where to park, and where to check the best wether etc, then check out the link below to our direct information page on England highest peak. We hope you find it useful, and take a look at the out hike from Wastwater too. The easiest way up Scafell Pike but still rewarding from the views that you get from the top. photo
