About trip


The most popular walk in these underrated fells which are, despite being in Cumbria actually part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This is a super walk that begins with an ascent onto the fells via the Cautley Spout waterfall. It is a magnificent sight as you approach the spout from the starting point at Low Haygarth situated three miles north-west of Sedburgh on the A683. After walking up the path on the side of Cautley Spout Tongue follow Swere Gill to the Calf and then walk over some of the Howgill Fells before dropping down to Bowderdale. It is probable you will be in solitude on this great walk which is good for you but a shame for those who don't know what they are missing.
