A lot of tree felling going on.. the warning signs were a bit OTT, but the walk was pleasant. Very easy with lovely views of the lake! Beware of the expensive parking!!

Beautiful scenery! A great way to see the lakes!

Great little trail, perfect for families. Thoroughly enjoyed the cold crisp November climate and the Croft House cafe half way round was fab!

Straightforward circular loop with good footing and signage. Despite it being November, it was all easily passable and we had a great morning ramble with our pupper

A great way to see the Lake District. An easy hike that you can take at your leisure.

Great trail - but be prepared for some muddy and windy parts. Beautiful views at the top and a couple other trails you can follow if you are feeling adventurous. Be aware there are no trail markers so be prepared to kind of find your way around. Also, you have to pay for the car park.

The road isn’t nice to walk down so we detoured down another footpath. The route is very muddy following lots of rainfall but fine in welly boots. Other than the road lots of opportunity for dog off lead which he really enjoyed

Great walk climbed up into the snow, but had to skip the last climb due to the weather.

Interesting trail with a nice view of the lake. Quite rocky so boots are a great idea, would have loved to have my hiking poles as well, since the descent is tough for the knees. Had snow and ice on the top. Clouded at the top, it is easy to get the wrong way down. I went down through another path (when you are going up you have a fork, on the map you take left, on the right is the one I took to go down). That right path is a good scramble and was not very happy to do it with some ice on top of the rocks.
