Lake District Walks

Our aim at WalkLakes is to help you make the most of walking in the Lake District. We do that by searching out the best walks we can find from gentle to challenging and also by putting you in touch with other people who have walked in the Lake District via our forum.

If you want you can keep track of your walks using our web site and log how many hills you've climbed and of what type, be they Wainwrights, Birketts, Hewitts, Nuttalls, or Marilyns. You can also explore all the hills in the Lake District using our interactive map or throughout Great Britain using our hill finder.

You can find out what's on in the Lake District by looking at our calendar and you can follow us on Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, Facebook, or via RSS.

We hope we can help you get more out of walking in the Lake District but do let us know if there's anything more we could do to help.
