Family friendly Wainwright walks.
Myself and my four young children have decided to tackle some of the easier Wainwright walk. I have listed below a few of the Lake District fells that I think are perfect for those little legs of the family.
Walking fells with such young children always brings with it a few problems that often cannot be avoided – tired legs, tired children and tired parents to name just a few! However, my children have now successfully completed 8 Wainwright walks and I can honestly say we have had minimal meltdowns during these walks.
The key is to have the correct equipment, I wear the Vango Grivola boot and they are not only incredibly comfortable but they also provide me with essential grip, especially when I am baby carrying. It is also essential that you plan ahead when hiking with young children, particularly the route that you intend to take. With many of the fell walks it is the distance from parking your car to the beginning of the ascent that causes the issues – often the children can be tired before you even begin the official walk! Luckily I have done some of the hard work for you and the following Wainwright walks are short in distance yet still provide breathtaking views from the top.
