"A lovely name for a lovely fell: Silver How is delightful."
A Wainwright

Part of the rambling ridge that climbs from Loughrigg to Sergeant Man and High Raise, Silver How is a wonderful ridge, bisecting Grasmere from the Langdale Valley. The summit gives wonderful views over Grasmere and Rydal and the lower slopes of the ridge on both sides are full of interest.
