Lake District Low Level and Lake Walks

Lake District Low Level and Lake Walks

by: Vivienne Crow
This guidebook describes 30 of the best low-level walks in the Lake District. From delightful wooded glades and sparkling tarns, to waterfalls and glacier-carved valleys towered over by craggy mountains. The walks described aim to seek out the best walking that the lower areas of the Lake District have to offer. This is an area that is justly famed for its magnificent scenery: from serene lakes and wooded valleys to spectacular hills and hidden tarns. But you don't have to climb its highest mountains to appreciate this beauty; some of the region's best walking can be enjoyed in the valleys and on the low fells.

With her intimate knowledge of the National Park, Vivienne Crow knows just where to go to experience the best of the Lake District. In this book, she guides walkers to well-known beauty spots as well as some hidden gems - with background information on both the human and natural history adding to the experience.

The walks are grouped by area and vary from 7 to17km in length. There is information about facilities along the way and public transport options for each route. The book is beautifully illustrated with colour photographs and has clear route finding instructions and coloured Ordnance Survey 1:50,000 map extracts. An introduction included information on geology, wildlife and habitats, history, weather, where to stay, maps, dogs, clothing, equipment and safety.
