This stunning new route opened in April 2016, circling the entireity of Ullswater. It follows footpaths and bridleways along the lakeshore, over fells and through woodland. Highlights include the spectacular Aira Force waterfall, Glencoyne wood - where Wordsworth saw the daffodils which inspired his most famous poem - and constantly changing views of Helvellyn and High Street. Not forgetting the pub or tea shop stops along your run! If you don't fancy the full 20 miles, you can split the run into shorter 5 or 10 mile sections using the Ullswater Steamers or an open top bus to take you to the start. The route is waymarked throughout and uses existing footpaths as well as some new sections of footpath recently created by the National Park with local landowners.
