Stanley Ghyll Force Waterfall is possibly one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the Lake District. Seemingly surrounded by lush green vegetation, come summer or winter, it’s a hidden gem. And perfect for a wet weather day walk.
The Wild Trail is a brilliantly fun and free 1.5 mile adventure loop through the ancient woodlands of Sizegh Castle’s grounds. There are ropes to follow, walls to climb, holes to scramble through, logs to balance on, tree stumps to jump across, a tree swing and much much more.
The free Farm Trail at Low Sizergh Barn takes you on an easy 1.75 mile circular (muddy!) walk through the ancient woodland
If you wish to simply circumnavigate Dunmallard Hill, then go through the gate next to the large sign post and turn either left of right. This will take you all the way round and back to the car park. You can also follow the path that takes you to the top from here.
The Stick Man / Gruffalo trail in Grizedale Forest is fun for the kids and easy too. Follow the Ridding Wood trail signs
Easedale Tarn and Sour Milk Gill from Grasmere is a lovely circular walk of approx 4 miles
Starting from the pay and display car park, walk round the Fish Hotel onto the path towards the lakes. Follow the path and when you get a fork, take the left path which will lead you to the lake. With the lake in front of you, turn right which will then lead you to the base of the Sour Milk Gill falls.
Moss Force is only about a 150 metre walk from the free car park at the top of Newlands Pass to the falls. Take the left fork to go to the bottom cascade and the right fork to head towards the top one.
