C Walk from Ambleside 2015

Walk Leader: Mark Stanford
Total Distance: 6.5 miles app
Total ascent/descent:

After walking across the park a steep but short pull up the metaled bridleway will see us onto to the shoulder of Loughrigg granting us a stunning glimpse down the length of Windermere. Our next destination is the sublime Loughrigg Tarn where, weather permitting, we’ll be able to look across to the Langdale Pikes and Crinkle Crags. Next up are High Close Woods before we move onto Loughrigg Terrace affording views of Grasmere. We then walk down to the shore of Rydal Water before making our way through the grounds of St Mary’s Church (assiduously avoiding the temptations of the Badger Pub) to Rydal Hall. Weather and time permitting we’ll explore the gardens before taking the gentle stroll back into Ambleside in time for a well-earned coffee or pint.
