Shorter Walks for All

When I was thinking about short walks in the Lake District I looked at three main criteria. For a start they should be short (4.5 miles maximum). Secondly the walks should not involve too much steep climbs. However I have included a few of the smaller fellssuch as Hallin Fell and Gummer’s How. Finally they should leave the walker with having had a proper Lakeland experience.

The majority of walkers who will take these walks will be those with young families, those who have not done much walking and do not wish to venture far and those of increasing years where the body will simply not go where the mind would like them to. These walks offer a real Lake District taster.
