Just with couple steps, you can enjoy better view. On the way to Jenkin Crag, there are lots of tall and unique trees. It's a big joy passing through the forest and then go to the top.

Although this is a great view (most in the Lake District are) there are better views just 100-200m further up the path! There are lots of rocks to sit on though, so it's a good place to stop for a rest!

There are no bad views in the Lake District. No bad walks or drives either. Even cloudy, drizzling days are great

Stubbled into this on the walk from Ambleside up to Wansfell Pike. Great views of the lake and a fun little geocache if you're interested!

Living a relatively short distance away from Jenkin Crag we are able to walk up on a somewhat regular basis. It's a bit of a steep climb from the Ambleside direction but so well worth it for the stunning view over Windermere.

Passing by the crag, on our walk back to Ambleside, we stopped for the view - very nice and worth the stop, but not one of the greatest in the Lake District.

I found this walk only as I wanted something to fill time while I was working without taking too long. Took the long way up as I went down the wrong path a few times but it was a great view from the top and I didn't see anyone in the woods as the weather wasn't great. Not too hard... More

Please read my comments in relation to the gallery which I initially confused with the Gallery which we did not visit
