Cautley Spout and The Calf. Guided WalkSedbergh Town Centre | Sedbergh |
A guided walk as part of a small group f no more than six people plus your friendly professional guide, to explore the beautiful hills to the north of the town of Sedbergh.
We initially follow the River Rawthey upstream to Cautley, then take a path steeply up into the hills to see the dramatic Cautley Spout, highest waterfall in England. Continuing upwards, and following the course of Red Gill Beck and then Force Gill Beck, we eventually reach the grassy summit of The Calf which at 676m above sea level is the highest point in the range of hills known as The Howgills. On a clear day, it’s a great viewpoint. The return to Sedbergh is a high level route crossing over the tops of Bram Rigg Top, Calders, and the grassy ridge of Rowantree Grains.
The walk is about 10 miles/16km with approx 700 metres of ascent. The terrain is rough in places and a bit boggy, so can be hard going underfoot. A head for heights is required for the ascent.
Proper hiking boots and outdoor clothing are essential. Young people under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Sorry, no dogs.
