About Walk up Scafell Pike
Walk up Scafell Pike is part of the Mud and Routes family of outdoor websites. It’s designed in the same vein as Walk up Snowdon– The number 1 online resource for Snowdon – with the intention that Walk up Scafell Pike will be just as popular with the UK hill walkers.
Mud and Routes – is an independent, non-corporate, walking website with a smattering of other outdoors sports for good measure. We review outdoor tech, food and any gear that looks particularly interesting. Oh, and we do love a challenge!
If you want to promote a walk you’ve put on line, let us know. We can help drive traffic to your site, be it personal page, community, public body or business. You can publish it online for free on Mud and Routes.
Walk the Three Peaks – The aim of the site will be to showcase the challenge and how you may be able to complete the challenge sensibly and with as little impact as possible. Of course, we’re talking any walk that’s called 3 peaks challenge from the National to the Yorkshire. There’s even the 15 peaks on there as anyone who’s read our 5 things can attest, we refuse to count accurately.

Welcome to Walk up Scafell Pike
Walk up Scafell Pike is the dedicated on-line guidebook for walking routes up Scafell Pike in the English Lake District, with free walking maps and full guides to all the routes to the summit of England’s highest mountain.
Scafell Pike is the highest mountain in England at 978m high and is one of the mountains climbed on the Three Peaks Challenge walk. It’s a formidable mountain that needs respect, with no such thing as an easy route up the mountain to be had. All the walks and hikes are a challenge, and well worth the effort to reach the roof of England.
The Routes to the Top of Scafell Pike page has an interactive map that shows all the walking routes to the summit of Scafell Pike from Wasdale Head, Scafell Pike from Borrowdale and Scafell Pike from Langdale as well as hotels, campsites and pubs near Scafell Pike (add your Lake District business for free), and there’s a page for each walk that shows the route, parking postcode, a downloadable file for your GPS device as well as details on the weather for the mountain.
Check out the Frequently Asked Questions page for more Scafell Pike facts such as how long will it take to climb Scafell Pike, where can i start the walk from and other questions.
