OS GRID REF:-NY 34697
Loughrigg Fell stands at the edge of the long ridge of hills coming down from High Raise over Silver How towards Ambleside and is separated from its neighbours by the depression of Red Bank. The fell rises to 335 metres (1,099 ft) high.
The fell is easily accessed. Ambleside, Elterwater, Grasmere and Rydal are all within reach, a nearby car park is provided at White Moss Common. The many tracks which traverse the fell include the Loughrigg Terrace, a level path which provides stunning views of Grasmere. Just beyond the eastern end of the Terrace are Rydal Caves , these are not natural caverns, but rather the result of quarrying.

Views from the summit include the Langdale Pikes and the fells around Grasmere,the Fairfield horseshoe and the Coniston Fells. Elter Water, Grasmere and a large part of Windermere can also be seen.
