About Criffel Hill

Criffel may be less than 2000 feet high, but as this is the highest hill for some distance it is prominent in views of the Solway Coast, from the Lake District. Due to its relatively low height, most people used to hill walking would be able to get to the summit and back within about 3 hours so that it makes Criffel an ideal half day walk. On a clear day, there are great views from the summit of the Solway Coast and the Lake District fells beyond including Skiddaw and Blencathra.
