A bit overgrown!

On a great walk between Troutbeck and Ambleside - but views of Windermere are somewhat restricted because the woodland has grown, Still a great place to visit.

went a bit off the track but eventually found our way back through the woods and the view of Windermere was worth it in the end

Is a view point on the old bridle way walk from Windermere. Pleasant 6 miles but far better views on walk than J.C.

Towards the end of a much longer walk. Worthwhile detour to a secluded viewpoint. Nice place for a picnic if sunny.

We did the walk up by lake windermere, we walked past this on the way and really worth the effort of walking up hill. Not a difficult walk but very enjoyable. When you stop and look out over the lake your amazed by the tranquillity and peacefulness of it all. Really a worthwhile visit!

We walked up Wasfell Pike from Ambleside and then had lunch at the 'Mortal Man' pub in Troutbeck (nice food), and then back around to Windermere via Jenkin Crag (JC). it was a great view from JC!

Short walk up to Jenkins Crag. Great views , peace and quiet not too challenging but can be combined with Stockghyll Waterfalls and Sweden Bridge. Leave the car in the Car Park and enjoy a stroll that's good for the soul.

This is one walk to do on a clear day as the views of Windermere from Jenkins Cragg are breathtaking. You need stout walking boots and a picnic and what could be more perfect than enjoying the beauty of the Lakes. Troutbeck is delightful and there are great views from beginning to end.
