Cumbria Way


The Cumbria Way near Rossett

The Cumbria Way in Great Langdale

The Cumbria Way is a 119 km (74 mile) trail through the heart of the English Lake District from the market town of Ulverston in south Cumbria to the historic city of Carlisle, close to the Scottish Border

The character of The Cumbria Way varies from rural charm to the dramatic as it passes through classic Lakeland scenery. Counterbalancing this, the northernmost end of the walk adopts an urban character as it follows the fast flowing River Caldew into the centre of the ancient border city of Carlisle

In spite of the many competing attractions for walkers in the Lake District, The Cumbria Way is deservedly popular. The route is readily accessible by road or public transport and short enough to be completed conveniently within a week by a fit walker, although a more leisurely pace is recommended to fully appreciate all that this interesting route has to offer
