If your in and around the Grasmere area of the Lake District, then Silver How is a superb walk for those not wanting to head out to loftier heights such as the Fairfield Horseshoe. This route also makes a nice round loop giving good views especially from the summit. The walk could easily be extended to Loughrigg Fell or around the lake below, but this was enough for us today before a drink in one of the Grasmere pubs.
