Gragareth is a mountain in Lancashire, England. At 628 metres it is claimed to be the highest point in Lancashire. The summit of Gragareth lies about 200m west of the boundary between Lancashire and North Yorkshire, but lies inside the 2016 border of Yorkshire Dales National Park. The south eastern slopes are known as Leck Fell and the southern slopes form Ireby Fell.
The summit has a trig point and extensive views towards Morecambe Bay, the Lake District fells, the Howgill Fells, Ingleborough and the Forest of Bowland. The county boundary wall running along the ridge is believed to be "one of the highest dry stone walls in the country." Historically it formed the boundary between the West Riding of Yorkshire and Westmorland. The Three Men of Gragareth are a group of tall cairns on the western side of the hill above Leck Fell House.
