About this book

Lake District: Low Level and Lake Walks describes 30 low-level day walks in the valleys, beside the lakes and on the low fells of the Lake District, suitable for walkers of all abilities. Each route is illustrated with OS map extracts, and range from 7 to 17 km in length, with no technical difficulties over terrain from wide constructed trails to narrow paths on open fell. Walkers who know the Lakes well may have missed some of the lower gems covered here from delightful wooded glades and sparkling tarns hidden in green folds on the hillside to tumultuous waterfalls and glacier-carved valleys towered over by craggy mountains, Lake District: Low Level and Lake Walks aims to seek out the best lower level walks the Lake District have to offer. Located across the whole of the Lake District, the walks are divided into five sections: South Lakes (Windermere, Coniston, Duddon and the south), Central Lakes (Ambleside, Langdale, Grasmere and Thirlmere), Western Valleys (Eskdale, Wasdale and the Buttermere area), North Lakes (Keswick, Borrowdale and Derwentwater) and Eastern Lakes (Ullswater and Patterdale).
