Howgills Walks,
Walking Routes & Hiking Trails

The Howgills walks listed below cater for walkers of all abilities from easy low-level walks to the high fells. All walks are free to download and print and all routes have GPS files. Most of the Howgill Fells lie within the Yorkshire Dales National Park but some of the northern fells lie outside the boundaries. The walks reach all the major summits including the Calf which is the highest point in the area. One of the highlights of these fells is Cautley Spout, which after heavy rain is a spectacular waterfall. The Howgill fells can be confusing in poor visibility so care should be taken when cloud obscures the summits.
