"Mountains" Lake District National Park Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Vic5

It may sound obvious, but make sure you wear appropriate clothing if you're going to do any hiking or climbing. The mountains in England may not be as high as some, but that doesn't make much difference when you fall because you didn't have decent shoes. I saw people climbing Helvellyn last week in sandals... Also make sure you have a map, water and some food. The weather in the Lakes, like the rest of the UK, can change dramatically very quickly. It could quite easily be sunny one minute and raining and misty the next. So just be prepared!
