St Sunday Crag

8 miles (13 km)

This challenging walk from Patterdale climbs to this prominentfellon the north-eastern ridge of Fairfield. The circular walk climbs to Birks Fell and then onto the 841m (2,759ft) of St Sunday Crag. There's fabulous views of the Helvellyn range, High Street and the lake below.
The walk takes place on generally good footpaths on a splendid elevated ridge.
You can start your walk from the pretty village of Patterdale at the southern end of Ullswater Lake. Then follow the trail south west out of the village to Birks Fell before climbing across St Sunday Crag. You then descend to the pretty Grisedale Tarn before turning round and returning to Patterdale via Grisedale Forest and Patterdale Common.
To extend your walking in the area you could visit the lovely Aira Force Waterfall. The long distance Ullswater Way will take you on a tour of the area surrounding the lake.
Wainwright's Coast to Coast runs through the area so you could continue along the path past Grisedale Tarn towards Seat Sandal where there are more splendid views.
