Low Pike is well seen from the streets of Ambleside as the first priminant peak on the high ridge running northwards. The gradient along the crest of the ridge is slight, but Low Pike, halfway along, is suffciently elevated above the deep valleys of Scandale, east, and Rydal, west, to give an impression of loftiness.
