High Rigg was one of the first fells we ever ventured onto. It was in the first month of doing any Lake District walks and I can still remember how warm it was on that late Good Friday morning with the whole place beginning to show off its Spring finery. The beauty of Tewet Tarn took our breath away, St John's in the Vale Church remains one of Lakelands unexpected surprises and the High Rigg ridge itself was just waiting to be explored; although in those early days we rarely wandered far from the paths.
In some ways High Rigg is very similar to Loughrigg Fell, found further south near Grasmere, it has the same web of paths, they're both littered with tarns and you can gain access to the fell from quite a few different directions. The big difference between these two fells is that High Rigg is usually much quieter.
