Trail 100

The Trail 100 are a list devised by Trail magazine, representing (in their view) the 100 best hills in the UK.  It’s not based on height or amount of drop and is purely a subjective assessment of the quality of the hill.  This means that it covers a wide range of hills, from the UK’s highest, Ben Nevis, to Roseberry Topping, which is only just over 1000 feet high.

For the most part, I’m in general agreement that these are worthy to be considered the best – at least when it comes to the ones I’ve done.  But I know that I will find some that I don’t agree on as I get further through the list.

I don’t realistically expect to complete them all, but I do try to do at least one on each major hillwalking trip that I undertake – at least until I run out.  I would like to at least get all of the English and Welsh ones though.  Anyway, here’s the table of what I’ve completed so far…
