“Easy walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 26, 2013

Easy walk to pass a few hours. Good views from the crag. Look out for bird life. We spotted Jays and a woodpecker plus lots of others.

“Steep climb - worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Start of walk is very steep/narrow path but becomes easier as you climb. From Waterhead, takes about 30-40 minutes. Views worth evry step of climb.

“Finally found it.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

We did a circular walk from the car park opposite Hayes Garden Centre. The guidebook we used was not clear for the first bit but once we found our way we enjoyed a lovely walk up to Jenkin Crag. We had lunch at Low Wood Hotel own the way round.

“Fantastic view of the wonderful Windermere lake!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

We passed Jenkin Crag on the way back from Troutbeck on a lovely circular walk that starts & finishes in Ambleside. The view from the Crag of the lake is by far the best from here. It's not a long way from Ambleside, approx 1 mile & the climb is not too arduous, so on a good day it is well worth the effort.
