Walking Log ... Walks including "The Calf"


The Calf
The summit of The Calf is the highest point in the Howgill Fells. Although the whole range is in Cumbria, part of it - The Calf included - lies within the Yorkshire Dales National Park.

It could be classed as the main hub of this small range of hills with several ridges running away from the top. One heads south over Calders towards Sedburgh. A second heads north over Hazelgill Knott. A third heads northwest before splitting west towards Fell Head and Howgill and north to Simon's Seat and Tebay. A drop to the east leads down to Cautley Crag and the magnificent Cautley Spout.

Although it is the highest of the Howgills, The Calf only comes in a modest 16th highest of the Yorkshire Dales fells.
