Grange-over-Sands Hampsfell all-ability route

The route up on to Hampsfell from Grange-over-Sands is a quality adventure for experienced Tramper users giving access to stunning high views that take in the whole Bay. With rough tracks and uneven ground, it's a great work out for a walking companion too but all your efforts will be rewarded with the most awe-inspiring views.

Grange-over-Sands Hampsfell all-ability route

5 km / 3.2 miles / 2.5 hours walk duration

Heading out from the Tramper hire shed at Grange Library, you will follow a quiet steeply climbing back road which leads on to a rough track.

You'll enjoy passing through woodland to the edge of the open fell wall. The route takes you up on to the path which leads to the Hospice (but you won't go quite as far as that). Once on the fell, the views open up around you giving a wonderful feeling of height and space.
