At 3,209 feet (978 meters) Scafell Pike is England's highest mountain. The summit is also one of the most stunning due to its remote location and awe-inspiring views. While many people conquer Scafell Pike every year, the climb to the top should not be underestimated. Make sure you are fully prepared (clothing, compass, water, etc). Enjoy!

Scafell Pike is England's highest peak. And although eager mountaineers might scoff at the mere 978 metres of elevation you have to conquer to get to the top, the views from England's highest point are spectacular — and all the better that they can be enjoyed by hikers of all levels. The shortest and most direct route up the mountain starts at the Wasdale Car Park, which is unsurprisingly also the most popular trail to the top. As ever when going outside in the UK, pack a raincoat!

The highest point in England! It is well worth a visit, but try and pick a route other than the main one coming straight up from Wasdale. Other routes are far better and there are some great features to explore along the way too

There are ongoing repairs to the "tourist" path upto Scafell Pike ufn due to the amount of people using this route from the NT car park below. There are numerous other much quieter routes to do. Bag Scafell aswell along the way and you'll miss this path but your starting point is the same. For a more technical route further up once you reach Hollow Stones you can scramble upto the stretcher box at Mickledore or ascend Lords Rake, West Wall Traverse to descend to foxes tarn before the final ascend again to the Pike which makes a great day.

England’s highest summit is not easily won. Whichever way is taken to the summit demands an investment of time and effort, but whether it starts from Wasdale, Eskdale, Langdale or Seathwaite, it’s a journey full of epic Lakeland landscape. It’s a complex beast, but one that offers ample reward for time spent figuring it out.
