Information

High Pike is one of the most Northerly fells in the Lake District and enjoys excellent views over the Solway Firth to Scotland. It's unlikely courses will take you to the top of this 658m hill, which is also a Wainwright, but if you do get there there is a nice seat to rest on. The orienteering will be on the Northern slopes on land that is fairly well grazed, resulting in fast running. The lower slopes in particular have a good amount of contour features which our planners will be making good use of.

For those who have the energy after their runs, a walk up Roughton Gill to see the remnants of disused mines is well worth the effort, or you could "bag" the rarely visited Wainwright of Great Sca Fell.
