Scafell and Scafell Pike Walks:
Scafell holds a popular fascination with all walkers.
Both Scafell and Scafell Pike – England’s highest peak at 3210 feet attract more walkers than any other fell.
It is accepted that Scafell is a completely separate mountain from Scafell Pike.
An inscription on the summit cairn records that the peak was taken into the care of the National Trust.
Furthermore, it acts as a memorial to those who died in the 1914-18 war.
Beware of sudden changes in the weather conditions and take care on the summits, as they are strewn with untidy boulders.
A col known as Mickledore connects both mountains.
Coincidentally, both summits are strewn with untidy boulders.
The shortest and quickest route is from Wasdale in west Cumbria.
