ABOUT THE WALK

The path leads away from the car park and follows the River Rothay through woodland. There are a number of picnic benches along here and plenty of paddling opportunities.

However, to continue on this route, cross over the bridge and then take the path leading straight on, clearly signposted for “Woodland Walk To Viewpoints On Loughrigg Terrace,  and follow the path to the terrace.

The path leaves the lake shore and starts to ascend before reaching a junction with a gate on the left and a path leading up to the right. 

After its hard for buggy's but suitable with terrain pushchairs with two adults to carry it over some of the rockier sections of the path. 

You can turn back at this point and retrace your steps if required. 

To continue on the route, take the path leading up to the right, signposted for Rydal Caves.

From the cave you can return the same way or you can include Loughrigg fell summit which is a good first fell, it is a steep but a good stepped path to the plateau then a grass path to the trig.
