Walks Grading
The terrain in the Lake District is generally tougher than in many parts of the country, and some footpaths can be steep and rocky. Grading of walks provide some indication of the degree of difficulty, but some people may find even the easy walks are too much. After rain some footpaths will become waterlogged, and on steeper ground paths can be quite slippery, so more care is required. If unsure about whether a walk would be suitable on a particular day, please contact us.

Easy - generally on good paths, with no steep climbs or descents. Usually less than 600m height gain

Moderate - mainly on reasonable paths, but some on steeper ground. Usually less than 800m height gain

Hard - mainly on paths, may be steep, rough or stony. Height gain may exceed 1000m
