Charity Walk Course

Scafell Pike, situated in the Cumbrian Mountains in the beautiful Lake District, is England's highest peak.

 

Characterised by its crags and rugged terrain, it stands at 978 metres high (3,208 feet). Along with Ben Nevis and Snowdon, it is one of the mountains climbed as part of the National Three Peaks Challenge.

 

Originally the name ‘The Pikes of Sca Fell’ was applied to the peaks which are today known as Scafell Pike, III Crag and Broad Crag. Scafell Pike was donated to the National Trust in the first quarter of the 20th Century by Lord Leconfield. This was in memory of the men of the Lake District who fell in the First World War. The walk should take somewhere between six and eight hours.
