Into the Wild

Ennerdale, the most westerly, the most remote of the lakes in Cumbria’s Lake District, is the perfect place for getting away from it all – it lies on no major routes to or from anywhere and the only roads in to the lakeside are single track hillside roads full of twists, turns and precious few passing places.  Chances are you will only meet like minded travellers, local farmers or environmental workers.  Their is a single track along one side of the lake that leads away into the hills.  Motor vehicles are restricted beyond a certain point to preserve the wilderness.  This single track is ideal for a hardy buggy and is therefore provides the longest sustained single walk available for a three-legged sheltie and her companions.

Heidi – looking irresistible

 

The track starts from the car park at Bowness Knot already halfway down the lakeside.

This is a straight forward there and back walk and impossible to lose the path.
