Where2Walk in the Lake District & Cumbria

There are over 150 of my favourite walks in the Lakes & Cumbria. To help you find the best ones for you please browse them....

...as a list

All the walks are free to download/print and use

I have walked every walk on the website in the last few years therefore the information is up to date. The comments though are my personal view and anyone under taking one of these walks is doing so at their own risk. My recommendation is always to obtain the appropriate map and use it.
