Much of the trail is easy and all of it is picturesque. The climb up the tongue is arduous, especially where muddy. We had difficulty locating the intended descent, but made our way down by following the sheep.

Easy trail to follow with lots of signposts.

Great way for families! If no signage, then just follow the well-trodden path ...

Good walk and some lovely views towards the start and end of walk. Few spots with cattle and seemed quite a busy route although undertaken during summer peak. Some sections of road walking so dog on lead. A good standard walk.

Great little walk with some lovely views

The trail is steepest for the first 1km, so don't get disheartened. Directions were easy to follow. Good view of Lake Windermere from Wansfell Pike

Went on a bad weather day - I’d imagine on a good day it would be a 4 or 5 star hike. Today it was just a bit of a slog. The Mortal Man has a nice fire and good food.

Fantastic 360 degree panoramic view awaits the end of the hike up.

As soon as I downloaded the free app it asked me to pay before I could use it.

We walked this route during a storm at Christmas. It made the experience all the more exciting as we were walking up the path with all the rain water rushing down it. When we reached the top, the views of the lake were incredible (even though visibility was poor).
