My friend and I hiked this mid morning and it was such a treat at the top. Luckily it was a beautiful day with blue skies because the view of the lakes was amazing! The hike wasn’t super difficult although the last stretch is a little more work. Definitely recommend the hike!

It's a fairly demanding walk up to Orrest Head, especially if one is over 40 and it's sunny!!! However, the views from the top are lovely and what is especially pleasing is that there are very few glimpses on the way up so the impact is even more impressive. Welcome benches at the top and plenty of nice places to grab a glass at the bottom. Thoroughly recommended.

Follow the signs from the main road near Windermere station. The walk up is steep at times but viewpoints give an excuse to catch your breath! At the end of the path you suddenly get a 360 degree view opening up.

If you are staying at the Windermere then pop up and enjoy the views. A bit of a climb but worth it.
