There is quite a climb to get up the hill but the view makes it worthwhile .the path is easy to folow but as its a popular place it can get busy

Not the most towering of heights or roughest of terrains Loughrigg, like all fells, nonetheless requires respect. A nice amble from Whitemoss carpark leads you up to Loughrigg terrace and then the walk up. There is no desperately difficult parts but some of the paths...More

This is a great choice for a family outing. There are a few areas where the climb is a bit more intense, but we managed with a wide range of age and hiking ability. The views are quite satisfying and appear comparable to what you...More

There are lots of ways to access Loughrigg Fell with parking at Pelter Bridge on the small car park. Follow the roadway, Under Loughrigg, towards Ambleside and turn right just before Miller Bridge House. Its a steepish climb but when up on the top you...More

Stunning views on a beautiful day. A great walk for families with kids. It is a steep climb, but kids get a great sense of achievement & you can finish with cake in Ambleside.

Great walk for adults and kids with simply stunning views of the tarn and hills. We parked in an NT car park (just off the A593 towards Coniston) and walked up to and around the tarn

Well worth the effort of the walk. Make sure you take a camera. Only an hour (or so) walk from Ambleside centre.

An easy fell accessed from either the Western edge of Grasmere or Miller Bridge in Ambleside. Great views of Rydal water and Grasmere

Lovely walk and not too taxing. I went up from Rothay Park (Ambleside). Nothing too strenuous, but beware, once in open country it is more confusing than a sudoko - paths here, there and everywhere and a risk that you lose reference points like Ambleside...More

All the car parks! Best route is through the park and up the fell, we did this route, see link. Look at Walklakes website for a relatively easy route up to summit, 3hours, 6 miles?

I think it would be difficult to get lost around Rydal Water and Grasmere. Park at White Moss Car Park or one of the other public car parks on the A591 and then follow the footpaths around the lake. I'm sure the kids would... More

Hello, sorry I've not come back sooner, as regards the 79 year old, I would say not suitable, to be honest there are no easy routes and it's quite a steep climb. Best not to put yourself in any danger.
