Things to do - Walking

The Duddon Valley has huge scope for hill walkers, giving access to classic peaks such as Scafell Pike (978 m.) and The Old Man of Coniston (803 m.). Easily accessible from the valley are Dow Crag, Harter Fell, Greyfriar, and Caw. If you are lucky with the weather it may be clear enough for you to see the five ancient kingdoms of England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales and the Isle of Man from a single vantage point. Plenty of less challenging fell walks take in tarns, waterfalls, lower pikes and crags which offer stunning views. You can wander over the Dunnerdale Fells into the delightful Lickle Valley, across Ulpha Fell or Birker Fell and into Eskdale. Those who prefer shorter, more leisurely walks can follow footpaths through woods, across farmland and along the river, discover the magnificent Wallabarrow gorge or explore Dunnerdale Forest. There really is something for everyone.
