it is hard work but so worth it as the view from the top is incredible.there could have been a few more signposts though as we were not the only ones who took a wrong turn

lovely walk up through the woods, rewarding view from the crag, spring sounds and scenes everywhere though too early for lambs.

Walked up from behind the Mountain Rescue centre in Ambleside. Steady uphill walk, not too challenging, easy to follow path. View from Jenkin Crag was amazing - even though it was rainy, and misty over the hills - would be fantastic on a clear day. Well worth the walk up.

A brilliant view over Windermere, definitely worth going :) a little rocky to get there and wouldn't go too near the edge and there is a steep drop.

A good walk up though trees with a lovely view over Lake Windermere a bit slippery when icy and also some loose stones but well worth it.

Short walk from Ambleside for a beautiful view. We did the Troutbeck to Ambleside walk and veered off for Jenkins Crag - wonderful walk with excellent views :-)

This is an easy walk with some great views across the lake. This rock platform is just off of the footpath.

a brisk, heart rate raising walk up but manageable for most, rewarded by the most beautiful view of lake and fells.
