Amazing hike completed in 6 hours, hiking 12 miles, tough terrain but worth the challenge.

Just fine. Quite flat, cute stream in part of the trail for kids to play. Forestry walk in the woods that looks fine. Well indicated path. Not amazing views or something really out of the expectations.

Great hike, long but not too strenuous. Worth getting up early to do this one for less crowds.
Route is easy to navigate with all trails map. No toilets on route only at campsite at the start. Just a shame couldn’t see anything when we got to the top

Lovely walk. Very popular with dog walkers and cyclists.

great walk but lot's of stiles if you have dog's and the ringlestone inn has now closed down

Fun hike with great 360* views.

A lovely walk with varied terrain and scenery. Highly recommended...

Ennerdale is quite a remote part of the lakes. Half of the loop is a well maintained track, however the opposite side of the lake is very rocky underfoot. Also in wet weather the trail is almost a stream off the fell! The scree section is fairly straight forward, but ( depending on which direction you take) the crag after it could be quite tricky as there is a little bit of climbing involved. The car park is free. ( Bowness knott) I would say it's a little harder than easy though!

One of my favourite hikes, exhilarating difficulty of Jacobs ladder, balanced out by some fairly leisurely walking.

I always come back here when I want a familiar day out! Love it!

awesome challenging walk note tough for dogs

Beautiful area with lovely views. Easy walk on good terrain. Perfect family trip.

Fabulous walk and views

My favourite place

Nice forest walk
Had a stop at the station cafe due to rain
On our way back finding the way was not easy

very picturesque walk, enjoyed it very much. the signing not great around the woods post the national trust walk, the yellow marks no longer present on the trees and hence was difficult to follow. Otherwise enjoyed the walk

Early start, walk was nice. I should of looped anti-clockwise, would of been better. Lovely views and was peaceful as walked on a Tuesday. Will defiantly walk that again.

I found the trail not well enough sign posted, we could not finish it unfortunately


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.

cross the river.turn left straight up.top scramble.

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.

Terrible and of no use

Beautiful walk

Very good on a hot summers day

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