This walk is very popular, although not always via this route. Starting at Coniston village and round the base of the 'Old Man', then continue up past Goats Water (with stunning views of Dow Crag), up onto the ridge of Goats Hause, slight detour north - and on to the top of Coniston Old Man. The decent is via the more popular 'tourist track' through the old quarries and mining areas back to the village.

Great trail And we extended it due to having the dog, some areas a tad unsuitable for large dogs. Views are well worth it
