The Cumbria Way can readily be walked in either direction.  Scenically it is probably best walked from north to south, the environs of Ulverston being more attractive than the urban approach to Carlisle. However, in good weather looking into the sun may detract somewhat from forward views and in poor weather the prevailing wind and Lakeland rain will be met head on.  Usually therefore the way is walked from south to north and the route is described thus


The route description on this website is only intended as a rudimentary guide, and appropriate guidebooks and maps are recommended
