Super

my first hike for nearly over 10years, had an amazing day the view wernt the best because of low clouds but what a climb, very rocky at the start but the path gets easier as you go, just keep thinking your nearly there and you'll do it, that's my motto and I conquered it of to snowdan next week then the big Ben Nevis after then hitting irish peaks, I can say the pike got me attached.

Great walk, great exposure to sun and can see far for most of the walk.

The uphill trail in the middle was good for working out, and a jog down increased the heart rate. Tired by the end, but plenty of places to visit on the way back.

Would go back & recommend going back with friends and family.

Would go for a speedy trek if I wanted to work out... very nice to go, we came from Birmingham and appears to be local.

We wore, meindl men’s Cambridge GTX walking shoe, and salomon 3D 4 gtx womens. 32 degrees clear skies sunny all day

We didn’t take exactly this trail. We took the ferry from Keswick across Derwent Water lake to the cat bells trailhead.

We then ascended to cat bells and walked along the ridge line to several additional high points — Maiden Moor and High Spy. Then we back tracked a bit and descended and took the ferry back. This was about 5 miles and ~2000 ft total elevation gain.

One can easily add chunks of distance to this hike on the end (all flat) if you want to hike along Derwent Water a bit to one of the various ferry points— or all the way back along the lake.

All in all a fantastic hike with great views.

Pretty easy with a moderate scramble in the middle

Terrible and of no use

For a novice walker this route really impressed me!

Beautiful walk

Part pilgrims way, part farmland with good views, lots of stinging nettles!

A good trail which follows a signed Coldrum Trail for much of the way with an extension to take in the stones. At least that was our impression, as the markers were not always obvious and we used the app map several times. The stones are worth visiting, what an amazing find. Near there appeared to be a path which could cut the route in half for those that prefer a short hike. We had dogs and other than the Trosley country park itself we had them unleashed for much of the walk.

This trail has everything you want in a hike: mountains, meadows, forest, wildlife, birds, English villages, and more. We did it in 12 days and stayed in B&Bs. This trek is not easy, the Lake District does have steep inclines where a few places are a scramble. If it's raining and slick it could get scary... when there is not a steep incline/decline it's a 20+ mile slog of a day. Worth it, but I would say it's a difficult hike as opposed to a moderate.

Lovely hike up to Skiddaw and then back via 'Little Man'. Took about 4 hours overall with a few breaks and having lunch at the summit.

One of the best mountain bike trails

One of my favourite hikes. Worth checking the water flow before tackling the waterfall at Gordale Scar. Not for the faint hearted.

Great day !

The Cotswold Way is a fabulous walk. I walked it over an 8 day period in March. It was very muddy and we still had snow on the ground but the scenery was spectacular.

Great walk, fairly easy apart from a section of scrambling. Fantastic views and even on a sunny day was sparsely populated.

Shit

beautiful day in May. Trails well maintained, challenging for a shorter hike

Completed at Easter. Weather wasn’t great but kids enjoyed it.

The perfect short 1 hour hike. Absolutely beautiful. The wishing tree was a plus!

Cheers,
Michael

A bit boggy in the middle but the views were amazing
