Information for Walkers
Northern Lakeland lies undiscovered with open fells providing wonderful walking. The highlights are Skiddaw, the fourth highest peak in the Lakes and Blencathra, one of the great mountains of the National Park. Both these mountains offer excellent routes with some ascents for those who like a challenge. Once on the tops the views south across the whole of Lakeland are magnificent and make the effort worthwhile.
Slightly further afield is the Helvellyn range and the fells of the Grasmoor massif. These areas are known for walks to suit all abilities from gentle low level strolls to more demanding high level hikes. In the valleys the lakes themselves provide easy walking and with few gradients these routes offer a leisurely way to enjoy the scenery.
