Easy Walks to Lake District Views

Easy Walks to Lake District Views

by: Mike Patefield
The Lake District is the most beautiful corner of England. Its picturesque patchwork of lakes, valleys, woodlands and mountains make it one of England s premier places to enjoy the great outdoors.

Walking in the Lake District is inherently rewarding with magnificent views almost everywhere you go. The best views are not necessarily from the highest mountains. Many excellent views of the lakes and mountains may be reached with easy walks. Indeed, the best views of the high mountains come from looking up to them and views of lakes are frequently at their best when looking down on them, after a relatively easy climb.

This book features twenty walks to viewpoints throughout the Lake District. They are graded from very easy, to fairly easy and then not as easy. Each has a full description of the route, including a sketch map and points of interest. They range from a level 1.5 miles to 6.5 miles with a climb within the capabilities of most. Each walk begins with a summary description followed by a panel giving distance OS Explorer map sheet number, starting point with grid reference, instructions how to get to the start and refreshment options. There are black and white photographs throughout the book
