Walks in brief
Walks Schedule 2009.

Our walks this year cover all parts of the Lake District and a little beyond. We will at some point in the year be visiting most of the highest Lakeland peaks and many that whilst of a lower stature are nonetheless worthy days out on the fells.

Walks are graded according to the difficulty of terrain, height gain and distance covered but whether you're a novice or a more experienced walker there's something for everyone. We don't always go by the most popular route to a summit. Often the lesser known paths can be more rewarding. You'll see things from a new perspective and hopefully gain new insights into this wonderful corner of the country.

We can also arrange walks exclusivley for you and your friends, for more details, click here.
