Howtown - Patterdale - Glenridding Walk

WalkExplorer

Possibly the greatest lakeside walk in the country! From Glenridding take the Ullswater steamer to the start of this walk at Howtown. 

The gently undulating walk back along Ullswater gives you fantastic views of the hills and lake. This whole section of the lake is devoid of roads and the walk uses paths and tracks running on or near the lake shore. There is the occasional short climb and the paths are sometimes rocky so stout footwear is recommended.

There are some excellent places along the walk for a picnic, some right by the lake on small (though stony) beaches. If you're lucky you may see a red squirrel.

Try the Howtown - Patterdale - Glenridding walk out on the FREE WalkExplorer app for iPhone. This walk will be on the Android app soon.
