Breathtaking views, an easy walk with lovely autumn colours, and a bonus in the Lakes; dogs can run free in the wood. Follow the main path from the car park going roughly South. The path starts climbing up the side of a pretty beck with a waterfall. Soon you are on the open fell of Low Moss. Turn left and soon you reach the lovely heathery summit of Walla Crag. Rest for a while, eat your sandwiches and take in the view before returning to the path. Stride on in a Northerly direction across the fell until you come to the ford and footbridge at the small farm at Rakefoot. The path leaves the lane after a few yards and looks down precipitously on Brockle Beck. Soon it turns left into Great Wood and any one of the paths takes you back to the start.
A few miles from Keswick on the Borrowdale Road. There is a car park and buses go along the road.
