The new Lakeland three peaks

Want a challenge? Like mountains? In the Lake District? Stop everything: Trail's just found your next Big Day Out...

If you love the landscape around Keswick there is really little better worth doing for nine hours

Stalking the hills

Exploring unknown places, finding new routes and scoring points... Trail has a new favourite game. We're going on an animal fell hunt.

We weren’t hunting animals, but their namesake fells - found all over the Lake District


The ghosts of souther fell

When darkness falls on midsummer's eve, legend and locals say that strange goings-on occur on this north Lakeland fell. It was as good an excuse as any for a wild night on the hill...

The sound of a legion of footsteps seemed a distinct possibility in my half-consciousness...

“Not just a job but a way of life”

Working at the hostel below the busiest mountain in the UK has its challenges, but Steve Webb greets 35,000 guests a year with a smile on his face.

So far, no Pen-y-Pass Hostel guest has become a mountain rescue fatality statistic.


Small Mountain, Big Character

Stac Pollaidh is little by mountain standards. And yet it receives the kind of attention that peaks around twice its size can only dream of...

Bad step, mauvais pas, the crux - call it what you will, but if you want to reach Stac Pollaidh’s summit, you have to get past it
