The best Scafell Pike walk, via the Corridor Route from Seathwaite, to conquer England's highest mountain


Scafell Pike walk routes height climbing corridor route, the best route up, Seathwaite, Elevation, Hotels, Campsites Lake District
Near the summit of Scafell Pike - what views on a clear day! There are quite a few walking routes up to Scafell Pike - but the route from Seathwaite via the Corridor Route is the best in my humble opinion and is often refereed to as the Connoisseurs route, as those familiar with the various Scafell Pike routes will recommend this particular walk. You may well only ever climb Scafell Pike once in your life, so make sure you choose this best walk & this way up, and not the more popular & shorter route (but a bit of a slog) from Wasdale :)

The impressive main chamber inside Cathedral Quarry, a small network of interlinked quarries above Little Langdale that where mined hundreds of years ago, and although now disused, and maintained and kept open for free by the National Trust. They are a good little destination for a walk and explore, especially with kids who will love it, and there's a pub in Little Langdale too called the Three Shires! What's not to like?
