Hallin Fell is an ideal option for novice hikers due to its straightforward path and favourable terrain.
It is also situated at the southern end of Ullswater, making it one of the less crowded peaks, offering the chance to enjoy solitude at the summit.
From the top, you’ll be treated to breathtaking views of Ullswater below and the Martindale hills in the background.
Moreover, you can make the most of your trip by combining the hike with a scenic ride on the Ullswater Steamers.
The Hallin Fell route is relatively straightforward.
You can park your vehicle across from St. Peter’s Church and follow the broad, grassy trail directly to the top of the fell.
The summit is marked by a large cairn, although its height has been reduced over the years from its original 12 feet.
Another option for those seeking a more extended excursion is to take the steamer ferry from Glenridding or Pooley Bridge and disembark at Howtown Pier (Grid Ref NY 443 198).
From there, take the path that branches off to the right from the pier and runs along the lake shore towards the boat house.
At NY 440 198, turn left and follow the trail that runs along the base of Hallin Fell before finally connecting with the lane from Howtown to St. Peter’s Church.
