Detailed route notes and a map are provided for all self-guided walks. The walks are designed for active families and are suitable for all ages from 10 years and up.
Option 1: The circuit of Derwentwater is a varied walk which will take you on a mix of lake-shore paths, woodland trails and some sections of boardwalk with lots of interest on the way. A full circuit is 10 miles, mostly on level trails. There are opportunities throughout the walk to shorten the route by catching the regular Keswick Launch (extra cost) from one of eight jetties around the lake.
Option 2: The ascent of Catbells is a relatively short climb to a spectacular viewpoint over the lake. The climb is steep in places but on a good, clear path. This walk is 9 miles with a total accumulated ascent of 700m. The walk can be shortened by catching the Keswick launch across the lake one or both ways (extra cost)
