The Fellbarrow & Low Fell Trail is a popular walking route in the northern portion of the Lake District due to its stunning scenery and not-too-difficult terrain that gently climbs up the hillside. Setting out from the village of Thackthwaite, the trail will lead you across a stretch of open terrain to the west that will see you climb gradually up the hillside.

After descending along the trail into the valley, walkers can either retrace their steps along the same route as an out-and-back, or take on of the alternate trails to complete a loop around the hillside to return to the trailhead.
