We had a good 4hr walk, 7 miles and this was near to the end of the walk, good exersize but better views to be had elsewhere like Laughrigg.

We enjoyed a circular walk from Waterhead taking in Jenkin Crag and Stockghyll Waterfalls. Well worth the effort! The views of the lake from the top are beautiful

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!
