This 7 mile walk starts by heading up to the view point, Orrest Head where Wainwright famously fell in love with the Lake District. Beyond Orrest we first walk through rolling farm land but then head over to Applethwaite common. This fell area will give you a taste of the higher Lakeland landscapes, but we only rise up to 250m and will go slowly to allow everyone to enjoy. The return track gives a fabulous view over the valley before the final woodland track to Windermere.
