Circular walk around Derwentwater

The walk around Derwentwater is a beautiful, 10 mile route. With flat and easy paths, you pass through woodland and along the lake shore. There are places to stop for picnics and cafes, and the Keswick launch to take for some of the route if you fancy a short cut!
