We went along Sharpe's edge and it's such a great venture.

Nice walk for all. With some more challenging section but nothing the dog couldn’t do.

Just watch where you park. Don’t want to come back to your car with a parking fine!

We went on late October. The starting trail is easy and chill with amazing view of the lake and autumn leaves. It must have rained the previous day. Going down hill is difficult for us as it’s so slippery there are no stairs or enough gravels to support hikers. Overall experience is great and definitely recommend it.

Fun hike with great 360* views.

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.

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

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

Beautiful walk with something for everyone can be difficult climb in places but worth the views
Lots of fallen trees over route so be careful
