Fairfield Horseshoe Loop


The Fairfield Horseshoe is a loop of Rydal Fells, taking in Nab Scar, Heron Pike, Great Rigg, Fairfield, Hart Crag, Dove Crag, High Pike & Low Pike.

This is a peaceful wander, starting with a climb from Rydal Hall, with stunning views that expand over Windermere, Grasmere and Rydal Water.

Fairfield summit offers 360 views and the following peaks plenty of boulder hopping fun.

We descended back down the two Pikes to an incredible sunset, a fitting end to a beautiful afternoon out.

A leisurely to moderate challenge, the Fairfield Horseshoe is a comfortable 11.5 mile hike for the average walker in optimum weather conditions.

All footage was taken on Monday 14th October in one circuit of the route, filmed on GoPro and edited on iPhone SE.
