Grayrigg Forest is a hill in England, located on the eastern edge of what might be considered the Lake District though lying outside the national park. Reaching 494 metres above sea level, it is attainable from the less well-known Borrowdale valley.

From near the summit, there are impressive views down into the gorge of the Lune valley, where road, West Coast Main Line railway, M6 motorway and River Lune crowd between the outliers of the Lake District and the Howgill Fells.
