Ennerdale is one of the quietest valleys in the Lake District. It's about nine miles in full length with no road access, so it is quiet all year round. This stunning, high-mountain walk takes in half of the Ennerdale Valley and summits some of the highest mountains in the area. Starting off at Bowness Knott Car Park, the route follows the edge of Ennerdale Water before heading up the side of Lingmell and following a long ridge up to the amazing peak of Steeple. At 819m, Steeple is the second highest peak on today's walk but undeniably the most exciting, so do climb it as the views are tremendous.

From there the route follows a superb little ridge that connects Steeple with Scoat Fell. The ridge is exciting but easy going and one only wishes it were ten times longer! Now the walk changes character by stepping onto a high fell plateau which you follow to the west over Haycock and up to the top of Caw Fell. The descent follows a grassy ridge north which almost takes you straight down to Ennerdale Water.
