This is a beautiful accessible walk, which takes in stunning views over Derwent Water.
Latrigg is one of the lowest fells, in the Lake District, standing at 838m, but is a popular climb due to its convenient location overlooking the town of Keswick and the beautiful views down the valley of Borrowdale from the summit.
The route, which starts at the gate at the top of the carpark, has been well signed posted (limited mobility path). At the start of the walk there is a fairly steep climb (1.7 gradient), which could be heavy going for a manual wheelchair.
From then on it is a fairly gentle climb to the view point. From here you can see along Borrowdale and Derwentwater. There is a bench here for your companion and a chance to take in the views. This isn’t quite the summit of Latrigg. The path to the top is passable, but it is steep and uneven. Most people choose to turn around here and head back the same way as they climbed up.
Once back in the down and enjoying a pint in the pub, you can boost to your friends that you have climbed one of Alfred Wainwright’s 214 fells.
