A series of useful leaflets has been produced by golakes to feature some great walks in the Cumbrian Lake District.
The Lake District offers walks for all abilities from the challenging Coast to Coast walk to some beautiful short walking routes which are perfect for
relaxing walking holidays
Voted time and again the walker’s favourite UK destination, the Lake District is a magnet for outdoor enthusiasts.
Although a relatively small area, the Lake District contains a huge variety of opportunities for walkers.
Maybe you want to experience the classic lake, valley or ridge walks made famous through countless articles and guidebooks? Most are easily accessed from the major Lakes tourist centres via regular public transport services, and many low-level routes are suitable for wheelchairs or buggies.
The golakes “On foot” series is a range of A6 pocket size leaflets which tell you about the area and fold out to A3 size to reveal the relevant walks on a map.
The leaflets also contain lots of other useful information such as local public transport details.
Clicking on each area covered will take you to a more detailed page about the walk complete with downloadable PDF leaflet.
