Walk up Skiddaw via Sale How and the Jenkin Hill Path Details
This walking route up Skiddaw starts from the centre of Keswick. It’s a meandering route up Glenderaterra Beck along the Cumbrian Way, passing the remote Youth Hostel at Skiddaw House before ascending the minor top of Sale How en route to Skiddaw’s summit, one of the few Munros Furth of Scotland. Staying at the hostel and ascending from there makes a proper weekend out of the walk.
