Cumbria Way Rucksack Readers Walking Guidebook

Cumbria Way Rucksack Readers Walking Guidebook

author: Paddy Dillon
The Cumbria Way runs for 73 miles from Ulverston to Carlisle. The route traverses the beautiful Lake District, heading north through unspoilt dales with stone-built farms, running around charming lakes and passing beneath rugged fells. Bust tourist towns and villages contrast with woodland, wild fell-side, high passes and remote moorlands. The Way passes over the summit of High Pike (658 m), with panoramic views, then descends to finish in the historic border city of Carlisle.

The route is described in six sections as follows:
Ulverston to Coniston - 15.7 miles
Coniston to Great Langdale - 11.6 miles
Great Langdale to Rosthwaite - 7.3 miles
Rosthwaite to Keswick - 8.2 miles
Keswick to Caldbeck (main route) - 15 miles
Skiddaw House to Caldbeck (alternative) - 12.5 miles
Caldbeck to Carlisle - 15.5 miles
