A circular walk around Derwent Water (9.5 miles/15.3km) taking you through a picturesque landscape of mountains, clear water and views that allow you to see for miles around. Starting from a car park located next to the Theatre By The Lake, we went clockwise around the route following a variety of paths, tracks and roads.
We did this walk in late April, a very sunny day yet parts of our trail were muddy due to previous rainfall in the week and a slight detour (read: scramble) due to high tide blocking the path, with the trial varying from rough to moderate. We met lots of people on the trial, dog walkers and people on canoes, kayaks and boats on different sections of the water when the path runs alongside.
