Walking Log ... Walks including "Totridge"


Totridge
Totridge is the northeastern end of a long line of fells running from Parlick and Fair Snape Fell in the southwest, that guard the southern reaches of the Forest of Bowland.

Totridge is a fell of contrasts. The eastern and southern aspects comprise of steeply descending slopes of short grass, the top is covered by a blanket of heather, and everywhere else is made up of a mixture of peat and vast amounts of water mixed together ... it's horrendously boggy. Any traverse south and west of the trig is hard work, constant ups and downs over peat hags with the mud trying to pull your boots off.

If total isolation with great views across the Ribble Valley is what you're after, then look no further than a trip from Saddle Fell to Totridge. Beware the peat bogs though, they are treacherous.

Including Pendle Hill, Totridge is the sixth highest fell in the Forest of Bowland, and well worth a visit.
