Dodd Summit - Love Walking Week 4


This is a lovely walk, steep but quick and mostly in the forest...













Situated in a popular forest this walk is best tackled on weekdays when it is a little more quiet. You begin by the tearoom where parking isn't super cheap so you park slightly further along the road away from Keswick in a lay-by.

It is then clearly sign posted all the way to the top where you are met with spectacular, panoramic views making the final slog very worthwhile! The circular route is 4.5 miles and doesn't take as long as the trail leaflet (which you can pick up by the tearoom) suggests.

So there you have it, love walking week 4 already! I can definitely feel the progress each time by just adding and extra half an hour walking. For more information see the Forestry Commission website. Next week I'm working on my endurance by walking around Derwent Water...
