New Feature: Summit Bagging!

December 31, 2020

We have a brand new feature on this website: Summit Bagging!

Browse our map for a summit near you. You’ll be pleased to know that they are not all mountains.

When you’ve found a Summit, tap the photo or summit name to load up the full details of the summit. You can also add Summits to your Adventure Planner, making them easier to find again.

When viewing the full details of the summit, you can click the button to show it on OS Maps. This will help you get a better view of the summit using an Ordnance Survey Map and also find any walking routes nearby.

Be sure to also check out what things we have listed nearby, as we may already have a family walk to the summit, as well as nearby activities and campsites.

How to bag a summit

Simply climb the hill and take a photo of you and your family as close to the summit that is safe and legal to do so.

Then, come back to the summit on this website, click Bag the Summit, then upload your photo. (You will need to be logged in to do this).

You’ll be added to the Hall of Fame on the Summit’s page. Plus, check out the new Summit badge added to your profile. You’ll also get more Active Family Points for each summit you bag.

Why not take on a Local 3 Peak Challenge next?

Some of our summits are also part of a local 3 peak challenge. If you’ve liked bagging a summit, simply bag the others to complete a local 3 peak challenge. You’ll also pick-up the Local 3 Peak Challenge badge.

Set the challenge level for your family

Not every summit is a mountain, but if you know of a local hill your family climbs that isn’t on the map, it’s really simple to add it.

Simply click the Add Place button that’s displayed at the top of the map. Select the place type of Summit, and complete the few details to get it added to the map. You’ll then be able to walk it, bag it, and be first on its Hall of Fame. 😀
