This was a great little walk with a couple of options depending on the length of the walk, you can also extend to include Derwentwater.

Even though this is the smallest it is still quite steep walking up to the summit on slate which in rain would be very slippery.

Great walk to keep kids entertained as plenty of rocks to scramble on, a memorial at the summit and a cave, you can even stop off at the stream and have a paddle along the way.
