On a visit to Windermere we looked for a walk that lasted about 1hr. We did the walk in reverse, up the step hill, then followed the arrows to the summit. We were luck with the weather. At the top great view of the lake.

Great evening walk with lovely panoramic views of the lake. Not a long walk from Windermere village.

The view is stunning, and very easy for anyone to get to. This is also close to Windermere town so if you are in that area it's a must see.

The walk up is quite easy especially if you stick to the path and don't go up the steps. We walked up when it was raining and the steps were wet and slippery. Hardest bit is at the top walking around.... it had been raining...More

We walked up here a couple of weeks ago. It was easy to find. If you walk up the hill towards the railway station the start of the track is to the left. We went to the right & walked through a field following the...More

An easy walk through great scenery to the best view of Lake Windermere. Good footwear in necessary as the path is a bit rough in some areas.
